Life Happens in Norwalk

October 28, 2022

Norwalk is the place to be! A fast-growing southern suburb of Des Moines has so much to offer someone looking to live out of city limits, with short commutes and great schools. Location is everything and Norwalk’s proximity to the Des Moines International Airport, major highways and interstates, as well as shared borders with Des Moines and West Des Moines make it a prime location. 

Norwalk has been ranked one of the safest cities in Iowa for five years running. Timber Ridge and Sunset Estates, both Summit communities, are located in Norwalk off 14 Highway within minutes of I-35 North with easy convenience to Des Moines. Both communities have homesites available or homes under construction


Over the last four years, Norwalk has seen amazing growth in the retail and commercial businesses. Three new retail centers were built, providing fifteen new storefronts, including Jimmy Johns, Mahalo’s Coffee & Donuts, Johnson Orthodontics, Bellflower Floral, and several others.

Several local and chain restaurants also recently expanded into Norwalk, such as El Dorado Grill, Arby’s, Subway, 1908 Draught House, and the award-winning Pyra Pizzeria. Additional new medical and service-based businesses built new facilities, including Mercy Clinics, Arch Foot and Ankle, Edward Jones, Norwalk Chiropractic and Jones Family Dentistry.

And don't miss North Shore! North Shore is a 360-acre area on the north side of beautiful Lake Colchester. Norwalk is currently working to build a new four-story hotel with fine dining and additional retail along the highway, overlooking the lake, making Norwalk one of the most sought-after in the Des Moines Metro.
