Great small town feel inside a big city. Caring and involved neighbors, great activities (farmer's market, fall festival, etc.) and lots of places to eat and numerous great, locally owned businesses. Love Holy Trinity there as well.

Beaver dale is a little nook In the middle of Des Moines, close to everything, and yet it’s as cozy as can be. The people seem to always be out walking their dogs, shopping, exercising, or having a drink on a patio. When I have children I want to raise them here!
Not many friendly people. Everyone seems to give you dirty looks or make themselves a victim. Kids always running in the roads and people will scold you for driving down the road. Not many people take care of their lawns and sidewalks, and price choppers ia the most expensive store I've shopped at. DQ is better then snookie and the bars are terrible. I've had someone try to break into my vehicle and kids race up and down the streets on their little motorcycles. I cannot wait to mo e out of beaverdale and I could go on and on for a long time.
