Polk City is a beautiful little town in southwest Iowa nestled in the middle of what is known as Iowa’s “Lake Country.” Located just twenty minutes north of the Capital city of Des Moines and the Iowa State University, many professionals and students choose to live in Polk City and commute in order to take advantage of the affordable housing, small town charm and outdoor recreational opportunities. The historic town-square remains the center of activity in Polk City, which began mostly as a rural agricultural community. A turning point came with the construction of the Saylorville Reservoir and Big Creek State Park in the 1960s and today Polk City attracts more than four million visitors each year! It has become a four-season recreational region that offers a full service marina, boating, sailing, fishing, swimming, picnicking, camping and snowmobiling and cross-country skiing in wintertime. Polk City offers the best of both worlds, the peace and quiet and natural beauty of a small town, yet just a short drive to all the cultural, shopping, theaters and restaurants of the big city.
