The city of Norwalk, IA, is part of the Des Moines metropolitan area, located just south of the Des Moines International Airport, mostly in Warren County with small portions extending into Polk County. Norwalk covers a land area of nearly 11 square miles, home to a growing population of more than 11,500 people.
The first settlers arrived in 1846 and a post office was established a decade later, around which time the original name of Pyra was changed to Norwalk. The first railroad into town was constructed in 1882, and Norwalk was incorporated in 1900. Today, the community encompasses the neighborhoods of Lakewood and Echo Valley Estates, close to Lake Colchester. The city also maintains the McAninch Sports Complex and the Norwalk Business Center. Golf is popular in Norwalk, at the Legacy Golf Club and Warrior Run Golf Course.
