Quality of Life
Excellent quality of life, central location, affordable housing, and appealing amenities make Hiawatha an inviting community for businesses as well as residents. The small-town feel remains in this growing community, where short commutes mean more time with family. Quality of life meets the requirements of Sperling’s “Best Places to Live,” while strong support allows several Hiawatha-based businesses to make the area’s fastest-growing companies list each year.
A Growing Community
The community’s growth has resulted in some recent additions that further serve Hiawathans and others who work and live nearby. Check out our newly expanded Hiawatha Public Library and the new Dave Wright Family Dog Park. Plus, the Mercy Emergency Department in Hiawatha Medical Park and other quality healthcare providers help to ensure the wellbeing of everyone who lives and works in Hiawatha. Our community welcomes you!
