Our library, parks, pool and other recreational activities provide opportunities for our residents to unwind. We are home to two Dallas Center-Grimes School buildings offering high quality educational opportunities to our K-8 children in great new facilities. The DC-G School system has strong academic, fine arts and sports traditions.
