The City of Bondurant was founded in 1884. The City itself was first established in 1897
. When established, the City was named in honor of Alexander C. Bondurant
, who was the area’s first settler and played a large part in the history of Bondurant. Alexander's entrepreneurial spirit has lived on as our City has continued to grow into a community of 5,493 residents. We continue to expand our horizons for the future while taking pride in our heritage.
Bondurant is located in the heartland of Iowa, and can be directly accessed by Highway 65 (from the northeast or southwest) or NE 78th Ave (from the west). For more information about our location, including towns nearby, please click here

The Bondurant Regional Trailhead is a centerpiece of the Eastern Polk County trail system and Chichaqua Valley Trail. Established in 2013, the 0.7 acre trailhead park features a 1,440 square foot open-air shelter with restrooms and water bottle fill station. This shelter is a replica of the original Bondurant train station that served train passengers from 1883 to 1962. The Trailhead sits on the historic Chicago Great Western rail line. The railway operated from 1883 to 2005. The trailhead rail bed right-of-away was purchased by the City of Bondurant from Bondurant Co-Op in 2011 to create a trailhead park to honor Bondurant’s railroad history.
