What You'll LOVE in Clive

Clive is just a few miles away from the excitement of Des Moines, but you won't have to travel to the city to find some fun. Here are a few more local spots you won't want to miss.

Highly rated parks and recreation

Clive is famous for its vast network of greenways and parks, including the 11-mile long Clive Greenbelt Trail and Greenbelt Park. However, this is hardly all Clive has to offer.

You'll find countless residents staying active at the Campbell Recreation Area, which features three lighted softball fields and two sand volleyball courts. Clive also has its own aquatic center, a special events building, and public programming offered by the Department of Parks and Recreation.

Tons of shopping & dining

Clive has just about everything you could possibly need, from unique restaurants to big-box retailers. Most of the community's largest shopping destinations are located along University Avenue—ClockTower Square, Valley West Mall, and University Park Shopping Center are just a few favorites.

Have you worked up an appetite? Head over to Cool Basil for some authentic Thai cuisine or plan the perfect night out at Table 128, an upscale bar and bistro. Locals also love Biaggi's Ristorante Italiano, Club Car, and Mi Mexico Restaurant.

A+ public schools

Clive is currently split between the West Des Moines Community School District and the Waukee School District. Both districts have top-rated schools and skilled teachers, as well as various sports and activities for students to enjoy. Some children opt to attend one of the many private schools in the Des Moines area, such as Bergman Academy or the Des Moines Christian School.
