I Visited This Facility

The apartment we saw at Walden Place had a nice balcony and it's lighter in color than the one we visited, which was dreary and dark. It's good. The dining area was pleasant and well lit. The only staff members we met were the people who showed us the rooms, and they were nice. They have an exercise area. The place was more colorful than other facilities. The facility has been around for a while, but it's well-maintained.

I Visited This Facility

We went to Walden Place. It was handy and it was close to my home. The staff was friendly, and it seemed they offer quite a bit of activities for a person to do. The cost wasn't too bad. They have Bingo, trips to the mall, bus tours, they take the residents to the doctor, and they do a lot of jigsaw puzzles. They have movie nights, a hair salon on site, and an exercise facility.

I have a nice apartment at Walden Place and they serve all meals. They change the sheets on the bed, but you have to do your own personal laundry. They have a barber shop and they have had a concert outside and a cookout. They also go shopping. They provide transportation for people who need it or want it.

My brother lived for a month in Walden Place. It was a very clean and friendly community that had a really nice dining facility. It was within his budget, and we could easily add services if needed. It’s convenient for us and his friends to visit.

Description of Walden Place


Situated on a hill overlooking the famous Mormon Trek Road, Walden Place offers you a scenic and vibrant community to explore and share. We are minutes away from downtown, outlet shopping, casinos and several area hospitals. Our surrounding area is rich in history and culture, with the Herbert Hoover Presidential Library and Museum and Amana Colonies both just a short drive away. Experience the natural beauty of the region with visits to Coralville Lake, the Mississippi River Museum or one of the 18 nearby golf courses. Walden Place provides our residents with many opportunities to explore and enjoy, or a comfortable place to simply relax and take it all in.

Walden Place is a proud member of Holiday Retirement, a network of more than 300 independent senior communities. Since 1971, we have led the industry with innovative programs that address the complete lifestyle needs and interests of seniors.

Featured Amenities

Our accommodations come in studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartment floor plans. All of our apartments have beautiful views of landscaped gardens and nearby rolling hills from either a patio or balcony. Each apartment also has a kitchenette, so you can make your own morning cup of coffee as you begin your day.

Visit with friends and neighbors in one of our common areas. Relax in our billiards and game room by playing cards, or enjoy your favorite show in our TV and media room. When it’s time for a meal, you will enjoy eating in our light and airy dining room

Available Services

While staying at our community, each resident has the opportunity to participate in our exclusive travel program. Through this program, seniors can visit nearly any of our over 300 retirement communities for up to seven nights at no additional charge. During the visit, residents will enjoy all the same service and amenities they enjoy at home while having the chance to meet new friends and experience new places.

We understand that each individual is unique and that needs may change over time. Holiday does not provide any health care services. However, residents are welcome to receive services from any outside home health care provider of their choice to help them continue enjoying life at our community.

Walden Place has plenty to offer area seniors seeking excellent retirement living.
