    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.
