Waterloo is a largely blue-collar farming community and is the county seat of Black Hawk County, Iowa. We are part of the larger Waterloo-Cedar Falls Metropolitan area totaling over 200,000 residents. We are an ethnically diverse community known for our shared commitment to hard work, resiliency, and kindness to our neighbors. Waterloo is also home to many family-friendly recreational attractions, such as the Lost Island Water Park. We also have multiple golf courses and city parks, an arboretum, George Wyth State Park, and many miles of nature trails for walking or biking. Iowa is absolutely beautiful during the summer months. If you take a drive outside the city, you will see mile after mile of rolling farmland filled with corn and soybean fields. It’s like being part of a living Norman Rockwell painting.
