Coon Rapids provides a peaceful and safe place to raise your family in an environment that provides modern conveniences and recreational and educational opportunities found in much larger cities. It is a great place to be connected – to people, nature, technology, recreation and business opportunities. It’s full of energetic people with a positive vision of the future and a drive to continually make our community a better place to raise a family or grow a business.
Hike open prairies, mountain bike through Oak Savannas, kayak the Middle Raccoon River, saunter through lush timber on horseback, aim for par on wonderfully manicured fairways, enjoy a dip or a slide at the Aquatic Center, throw a strike down the bowling lane, listen to live music, cheer on local athletes, shop at local retailers… Whatever you’re looking for, we’ve got it, and more!
Coon Rapids had the honor of being designated as a Main Street Community by the Main Street Iowa Program in August 2019. The mission of the Main Street Iowa Program is to improve the social and economic well-being of Iowa's communities by assisting selected communities to capitalize on the unique identity, assets and character of their historic commercial district.
