Come visit the City of Waukee! Waukee hosts many events and activities throughout the year and invites you to be a part of the action. The Triangle, Waukee's downtown business district, plays host to the Farmer's Market, 4th of July Parade, and Celebrate Waukee, in addition to other annual festivals. Take advantage of Waukee's many amenities available in its eight recreational parks and three major trails, or play a round of golf at the Sugar Creek Municipal Golf Course.
The Racoon River Valley Trail, whose trailhead is located in Waukee, was designated as "One of Iowa's Great Places" by the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs in January 2015. This honor came with a $200,000 state grant that will help build a major public art installation at the trailhead in Waukee.
