Welcome to Adel, a town where charm meets adventure. Just a short drive from the Des Moines metro, Adel is a great place to work, live and raise a family. You will find excellent public schools, comfortable neighborhoods and a welcoming community in Adel. There’s ample recreational opportunities from our great City Parks, Dallas County Fairgrounds, and location on both the Raccoon River and the Raccoon River Valley Trail.
We are excited to have welcomed many new residents and businesses into our thriving community in recent years. Adel is a progressive, forward thinking community that also takes pride in our historic charm. We are unique with our long-standing brickyard, original brick structures and brick streets. Adel is also the birthplace of Nile Kinnick and is the Dallas County Seat.
