Incorporated as the city of Valley Junction in 1893, West Des Moines took its present name in 1938. It’s now home to an estimated population of nearly 67,000 people across a land area of 38.5 square miles, mostly in Polk County with slivers extending into Dallas and Warren counties.
The city began to grow significantly in the 1950s with the construction of many new housing subdivisions. Interstates 35, 80 and 235 were completed in the 1960s, bringing even more people and businesses to the community. Today, West Des Moines is known for shopping at Jordan Creek Mall and West Glen Town Center, plus more than 200 restaurants. With some 600 acres of parkland, Raccoon River Park is a popular spot for outdoor relaxation.
