Windsor Heights City Government Department
Whether you are a Windsor Heights resident, interested in moving to our city, or starting, relocating, or growing a business here, we welcome you to our beautiful city.
Windsor Heights is small quiet closely knit community nestled in the heart of Polk County. We are a bike and walking trail hub that links to several cities – so you can get just about anywhere in the Metro from our trail which weaves through our city as it follows closely along Walnut Creek.
Not only is it beautiful, it is a great place to raise children. Children can choose from Des Moines, West Des Moines schools, and private schools. Our City is also proud to have Cowles School, the only public Montessori School in the state of Iowa,
We take pride in our special events and strong volunteer groups. Our Windsor Heights Community Center is our signature piece for our special events including Movies in the Park, 4th of July, Oktoberfest and Windsor Wonderland. In addition, you can enjoy Music in our Park every Tuesday night from spring – fall at our outdoor Performance Pavilion, And, yes, we even have tennis courts!
Our housing is unique; each home has its own character, from charming bungalows – to sprawling beautiful brick ranch homes and welcoming two-stories - all framed with gorgeous older trees that have a spectacular mix of color in the fall and spring.
Our Police, Fire and Public Safety personnel are the best in the business. On any given day, you will see them driving around the neighborhood ensuring that all is safe and secure. Or visiting a neighborhood block party. Our city is proud to offer free vacation checks too.
