you belong in Pella
Big enough to have options, small enough to belong!
With our small-town charm and bustling downtown vibe, Pella is a thriving place to call home. Think exposed brick and cobblestone streets paired with boutique shopping and the best craft beer bar in Iowa. There is a wide range of recreational opportunities from our 15 city parks, outdoor aquatic center to Lake Red Rock with exceptional water sports, camping, fishing, paddle boarding, and over 10 miles of bike trails literally in our back yard. Pella offers a great mix of Dutch culture and history which is celebrated during Tulip Time, our annual festival held the first Thursday, Friday, and Saturday in May. You’ll find excellent public and private schools, new and historic neighborhoods, and a safe place to call home.
But don’t take our word for it, according to Area Vibes, Pella has a Livability Score of 92/100, which is considered exceptional!
