Madrid has all the advantages of a small town with close proximity to several metro areas. A short 15-30 minute drive to Ames, Ankeny, Boone, Perry, or Des Moines makes commuting an ease and puts daily conveniences within easy reach.
In Madrid, you will find friendly neighborhoods, small K-12 class sizes, and more convenience, with the elementary and the middle/high school located in town. Our streets are quiet and safe, and many other families live here. You and your children will quickly make friends.
Unique Recreational Options
Nestled between beautiful Ledges, Jester Park, and Big Creek State Park, you will find many wonderful activities nearby. Whether you live here or are just visiting, be sure to check out the “Playing” menu!
