Yes, make sure to check out Malvern. About 10 minutes east of Glenwood. Malvern is growing quite rapidly and has a very clean downtown area with some nice niche shops.

Glenwood is also growing rapidly. About 3 thousand people in 12 years. Pretty good for a rural Iowa town. Glenwood has many new subdivisions. Some with customs homes. Living in Glenwood and Malvern you should have anything you need within 15-30mins.

Good Luck

lived in glenwood for 4 years. my mother moved me out there when i was 13 after my best friend died in a gang related drive by. i had gotten involved in the boxing club that was there at the time, and the whole small town thing settled me down. Its a great town to live in with great caring people. i live in omaha now at the age of 25 now me and my family are looking to move back, i would really love to raise my children in glenwood. so if anyone knows where i can find a nice home to rent in the glenwood area please contact me.

This information was pulled from wikipedia
The Des Moines metro is at least a half-million people, I'm guessing your statistics are for Des Moines proper, which being more inner city isn't going to have much room to grow. It's the burbs that have rapdily grown - West Des Moines, Waukee, Ankeny - in the last two decades that is fueling the area's population growth.
