    I'm so glad this old filling station was not torn down! It's the backdrop for Polk City's best ice cream shop, The Creamery. Do you like soft serve? They have it. Do you like mixed ice creams? Yes! Slushes and fizzes and all kinds of sweet treats are offered here. It's also on the town square, which is the summer hangout in Polk City! Check it out this summer on your way to Saylorville Lake!

    There is something to be said for living in a peaceful, quiet community free from the congestion of the larger cities. If this appeals to you, then consider Polk City. This community offers quiet country-like living but is still convenient to all the larger cities in the area such as Grimes, Ankeny, West Des Moines, and Urbandale.

    Specifically, the Wolf Creek Townhomes take this a step further and offer maintenance-free living. Stand-alone villas and bi-attached homes make up this townhome community. The homes provide all of the size, space, and privacy of a single-family home at a much lower cost. Located on the east side of the TCI golf course, the landscape is beautiful with mature trees surrounding the area.

    This area is also very convenient to recreation, parks, bike trails, shopping, restaurants, and the future Northeast Polk Elementary School. New homes in this area range from the low $290's to mid $300's.

    The Metro Home Improvement Program is in place to help preserve affordable housing options. A total of nine cities collaborate and participate in this program. Polk City is one of those communities. The program is funded to assist three-four homeowners during a funding period with such repairs as siding, roofs, windows, electrical, and plumbing. Homeowners who are interested in this assistance can fill out an application. The home must be a primary residence of the applicant and have an assessed value below $165,000. Property taxes, mortgage payments, and insurance must be current.

    If you are awarded a grant it will be in the form of a five-year forgivable loan. For further information or a program, application click on the link below.
