Valley Community Center

Valley Community Center


A place to get coffee that has a kids play area.  Hmmm.  That sounds pretty appealing to me as a parent.  Does such a place exist?  Why yes, yes it does.  Look no further than the Valley Community Center in West Des Moines.  Open Monday thru Friday (9am-2pm), the Community Center provides a great place for parents to escape bad weather, get some caffeine and let the kids have a little fun. 


The Maplenol Café located inside serves coffee drinks, smoothies and light snacks.  Plus they have free wifi so you can check out the latest happenings on Des Moines Parent while you sip on your coffee. 


While you get caffeinated the kids can play in the indoor play area.  This space provides fun and engaging equipment for kids from toddlers to age 8 and seating for adults.

Did I mention they have big comfy leather couches to sit on as well.  BONUS!  So whether it’s hanging with the kiddos or meeting a friend for some coffee, the Valley Community Center is a great place to check out.
