Deep in the heart of eastern Iowa lies the growing community of Marion, which shares its northeastern boundary with Cedar Rapids and its eastern boundary with Robins. Marion's real estate offers many affordable homes for sale, new houses, golf property and estates. Centrally located just a few hours from Chicago, St. Louis, Kansas City, Omaha, Minneapolis and Milwaukee, Marion is a thriving and diverse city. The community's vibrant retail business and two award-winning school districts all find a home within the city's borders.
The original town center is oriented around Marion Square Park and is a place of special importance to the city's approximately 36,000 residents. Many unique and architecturally significant turn-of the-century buildings are located within the square and have been restored. Several of these well-preserved brick-front buildings are now used for specialty retailing and services - especially antiques. The heralded Marion Arts Festival is held in Marion Square Park and is one of the Midwest's finest showings of regional artists. The Marion Park and Recreation Department maintains 16 city parks, a community center, Willowood Pool and the Boyson Hiking-Biking Trail.
