A desirable residential neighborhood located just inside Des Moines’ northern city limits, Lower Beaver is occupied by a large number of urban, upper middle-class working professionals. Other residents in this walkable community include young people in college, senior citizens, and a range of ages in between.

When Forbes named Des Moines the Best Place to Raise a Family in 2010, neighborhoods like Lower Beaver served as a good example. The majority of homes in the neighborhood are owner-occupied and buck the housing trend. At the end of 2010, the median sale price for Lower Beaver homes increased to $137,500. Affordable housing was one consideration on the Forbes list.

With the Des Moines River forming the east boundary of Lower Beaver and the latest segment of Des Moines’ extensive trail system crossing through the area, it’s a great community for outdoor recreation enthusiasts.

The opening of the Trestle to Trestle Trail in 2010 linked a Des Moines River train trestle on the Neil Smith Trail to a bridge train trestle at Beaver Creek. One direction of the trail hooks up Inter-Urban trails crossing the river, while the north section winds under Interstate 35/80.

Lower Beaver and other neighborhoods linked with the popular trails offer residents a safe way to travel throughout the metro without risking the dangers of riding a bicycle in traffic.

The busy main routes of Douglas and Euclid Avenues form the southern edge of Lower Beaver. A large number of shops and dining establishments line these streets. Beaver Avenue marks the western border and features industrial businesses and prairie landscapes. Trees along the banks of the river also provide scenic views.

Other Forbes rating criteria included recreational opportunities, commute time, access to quality education, and low crime rates. Lower Beaver represents each of those positive traits.
