Construction on a new senior center is underway and is expected to be completed in late 2021. As the City of Ankeny continues to grow, a focus has been placed on the senior citizens in the community. A much needed senior community center will focus on their needs offering a large community center, classrooms, indoor walking track, pickleball courts, shuffleboards, golf simulator, and health screening areas.
The City of Ankeny and Polk County have collaborated on this new project to build a first-class facility that would not have been possible without the other entity. The new facility will be able to provide seniors a meal and engage them with their peers in lots of different activities.
The new Senior Community Center will be located on NW Ash Street next to the Fire Station Headquarters on First Street.
