Clive, Iowa is a charming suburb of Des Moines, the capital of Iowa. It is ever growing, with over 1,200 acres of land that is currently being developed for residential and commercial purposes. Clive home owners love where they live because they can go to Des Moines for any amenity they desire, but they do not have to live with a big city atmosphere.
Families who live in a Clive home love to go to the Clive Aquatic Center. The center features a leisure pool (which includes a zero depth entry, spray fountains, a treehouse slide, shade seating - this pool is perfect for toddlers), a lap pool (including a diving board, 3 waterslides, basketball hoop, and six 25 meter swimming lanes), and a lazy river. They also offer swimming lessons for ages 3 and up. For more information, click here.
There are 297 acres of parks for residents of Clive homes to enjoy. A local favorite is Greenbelt Park. It features gorgeous nature the is indigenous to the Iowa landscape. There are playgrounds and a trail that is perfect for walking, jogging, rollerskating, biking, and pretty much anything you can imagine. There is also a large shelter that has room for up to 60 people that has electrical outlets, picnic tables, and grills. Overall, this park is a great place to have a party, barbeque, or to just go on run.
