Welcome to Waukee, a city of around 20,000 people! Waukee is a growing area with a significant amount of new housing. Waukee is located on the western side of the Des Moines area, just off of Hickman Rd and not far from Interstate 80. Waukee is in Dallas County and is a neighboring city to West Des Moines, Clive, and Urbandale! All of Waukee is served by the Waukee Community School District, which is one of the biggest districts in the state since it includes students from some of its neighboring cities. Waukee is a very fast growing district and boasts fantastic and updated facilities for its students!
The Grace Wood community of Waukee is full of beautiful new homes and is not far away from all of the activities Waukee has to offer. This neighborhood is located very close to Grant Ragan Elementary School as well as Warrior Lanes Bowling Alley, a Dollar Tree and a Hy-Vee. Waukee is full of local restaurants, but near Grace Wood there are places such as Saint’s Pub + Patio, Nick’s Steak and Prime Rib, and a Dairy Queen among many others. Some other activities include the local YMCA and the IMAX movie theater that is currently under construction. Although this neighborhood is close to many activities and allows for easy access to the Jordan Creek area and Des Moines, it still offers the quiet safe suburban feel that you can’t find everywhere!
We look forward to helping you find your place in Waukee!
