Union Park Reviews
We’ve lived in this area for over 5 years, & love the beautiful historical Union Park. You can walk to the downtown farmers market, walk to the botanical garden, so close to the best trail system in Des Moines. It’s close to all the fun places in Des Moines! The folks are very friendly & comprised of mostly quiet older people or sweet young families. Everyone knows each other & there’s a real sense of community which is really nice. When we first moved here our neighbors all introduced themselves & were very sweet & welcoming “we even got cookies!”
This area has a lot of opportunities for young families, in education, child care, job security, a lot of help wanted signs at all the various fast food places, also various well known business's. For entertainment, this city is widely recognized for its night life and the varieties available for all ages, there is something enjoyable, at all hours, and every day of the week. A lot of area business have conferences, due to the fine quarters available to all area business's.
