The District at Prairie Trail

Positioned at the center of it all just off SW State Street at SW Vintage Parkway, The District is home to retail boutiques, dining and entertainment venues. It is designed to enhance the already vibrant central Iowa community of Ankeny.

Jethro’s BBQ Lakehouse was the first restaurant to open at The District in Summer 2012 and quickly became a popular destination for delicious food and fun!

In the Summer of 2013, we celebrated the opening of The District’s new fire pit. It is strategically located lakeside between Jethro’s and a pad adjacent to the east, which has been prepared for the next new restaurant. Just announced…. Urban Grill owners, Dave & Jean Thompson, have chosen The District at Prairie Trail for their second location. It will be adjacent to the firepit, overlooking Lake Promenade.

Along Main Street at The District, construction began in April 2013 on another new building complex called Vintage Main. This 67,000 square foot building is beautifully designed with vignette store fronts at street level and a two-story glass atrium wall showcasing expansive views overlooking Lake Promenade to the southwest.
