Excursions Tailored For Seniors

There are plenty of things to do in Ankeny and neighboring cities. Here are some of the hot spots and events our seniors like to venture to:

  • Wells Fargo Arena: This 17,000-seat area opened in 2005 as part of the Iowa Events Center complex, including Hy-Vee Hall and the Community Choice Convention Center. Three professional sports teams call the arena home — the NBA G-League’s Iowa Wolves, the AHL’s Iowa Wild and the IFL’s Iowa Barnstormers. Our residents enjoy heading to Wells Fargo Arena to catch a game and cheer on their Iowa teams.
  • Boone & Scenic Valley Railroad: Founded in 1983, the railroad offers scenic tours, dinner trains and themed rides on vintage locomotives. It’s a perfect attraction for families and train enthusiasts, like our residents, who enjoy riding the trains and viewing Iowa’s railroad history and stunning valley views.
  • Reiman Gardens: Our residents love to enjoy nature, relax and rejuvenate. You’ll find our residents at Reiman Gardens on a warm day. Reiman Gardens, a 17-acre public garden with natural beauty and educational exhibits, is located at Iowa State University. Highlights include the Christina Reiman Butterfly Wing, which is home to up to 1,000 butterflies and diverse plant collections, including the Buck Rose Collection. The garden also features themed areas, such as the Hughes Conservatory and the Reflection Garden, making it the perfect destination for our residents, families and nature enthusiasts.

Hear From A Resident’s Family Member

“We moved Mother to Independence Village of Ankeny three years ago. At that time, she fit perfectly in assisted care. Recently, as her memory has gotten progressively worse, an apartment opened up in the Memory Care neighborhood. The staff at Independence Village of Ankeny is amazing. They know our family by name and are always ready to help with everything. It gives our family great comfort knowing that Mom is treated with love and dignity in her later years of life. From the maintenance man to the chef, to the front office workers to the caregivers, they all work as a team and are ready to help no matter what we ask. We highly recommend Independence Village of Ankeny!”
–Steve, Resident’s Family Member
