Greetings! On behalf of the Mayor and citizens of Pleasantville, we would like to welcome you to our community. Pleasantville is located 25 miles southeast of our Capital City, Des Moines, in the gentle rolling hills of South Central Iowa. Pleasantville’s top rated school system, various businesses and promising opportunities, and short distance to the shores of Iowa’s largest lake, Lake Red Rock, makes our community a great place to live, work, and play.
Pleasantville offers various businesses and promising opportunities. A local grain elevator, truss factory, machinists and industrial manufacturing provide ample jobs for area residents.
A historic downtown offers everyday activities from shopping to pet grooming to the best cup of coffee and pizza in Marion County.
Local farmers produce some of the best livestock and crops in the state. An up-and-coming vineyard adds to the diversity of our wonderful rolling land and fertile cropland.
With safe streets, quality schools and blossoming industry, the Pleasantville area provides for an excellent hub for all businesses and opportunities.
Pleasantville Community Schools is the first school in Iowa to be approved by the Iowa Department of Education for an Innovative Calendar featuring four-day weeks.
We encourage you to take time to explore this website and the many aspects of our community. If there is anything we can do to help you become better acquainted with Pleasantville, please don’t hesitate to contact City Hall at any time at 515-848-3316.
