Polk City, Iowa, while being one of the fastest growing communities in the Des Moines metro, maintains all the small town charm, yet is close enough to city conveniences to have a cosmopolitan atmosphere.

Polk City’s motto is a “city for all seasons,” and it lives up to that motto by offering some of Iowa’s best golfing, fishing, boating, bicycling, swimming, hunting and cross-country skiing thanks to its location near three major recreational areas. Sailorville Lake, with 6,000 acres of water and 20,000 acres of public land, is the premier outdoor adventure destination in Polk City where visitors can enjoy camping, biking, boating, fishing, wildlife viewing and more. 3,550-acre Big Creek State Park has an 866-acre lake that’s perfect for swimming, canoeing and boating with. Recreation facilities include a spacious beach, a playground, disc golf, a model airplane control field, picnic areas and a snowmobile trail. Jester Park is just minutes from Polk City and offers a unique setting for hiking, fishing, golfing and horseback riding.

Polk City also hosts many events throughout the year that’s fun for everyone. The Four Season Festival, held at the end of July, offers 2 days of non-stop fun. Register for a 5K walk/run and the Bill Riley Talent Search. Afterward, enjoy a parade, live music, a horseshoe and softball tournament, car show and steak fry. In the fall, join the community in the annual Big Creek Fall Bike Ride for a gorgeous bike ride through the area followed by food and entertainment after.
