Norwalk was incorporated in 1900 and to this day remains a close-knit, thriving community with plenty of amenities. Located 20 minutes south of Downtown Des Moines, Norwalk is regionally notable as having three golf courses, two of which—Echo Valley and The Legacy—sit amidst residential developments. The city of Norwalk is a great location to choose Tanzanite Homes as your home builder, with spacious lots and a variety of outdoor spaces for residents to explore. The city’s parks offer a variety of activities such as fishing, basketball, baseball, soccer, disc golf, skateboarding, and even Iowa’s first challenge course. There are miles of linear recreational trails both on and off street, and the most recent addition to the trail system goes through Warrior Park to Orchard Hills Elementary School.
