Drake/Dogtown


Sunday, June 19, 2022

Drake is one of the oldest, largest, and most diverse neighborhoods in Des Moines. Bounded by MLK, I-235, 42nd, and Franklin, it's home to Drake University, beautiful boulevards, mature trees, historic homes, unique shops, and amazing neighbors. The Drake Neighborhood Association is an all-volunteer organization of people who live, work, study, or worship in the neighborhood and are working to celebrate its strengths, tap its residents' many talents, and make it even better.

Dogtown is a new business, dining, and entertainment district next to Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa. The area has a rich history serving the university and surrounding neighborhoods. The development of the Dogtown District is a collaboration between Drake University, The Neighborhood Development Corporation, and the Des Moines West Side Chamber of Commerce. Other partners include the City of Des Moines and Invest DSM.
