The Arden Hills City Council recently approved a plan for a
new 120-unit senior housing community west of Old Highway 10 on vacant land
south of Parkshore Drive.
The proposed development will include memory-care suites,
assisted-living units and independent-living apartments. The project is slated
to begin in 2020 and take 18 months to build. The community and care will be
managed by Walker Methodist.
Proposed amenities include craft rooms, library, health and
exercise center, salon, deli and theater.
The project also will include new trails around the
property, along with exercise stations and shuffleboard courts on adjoining
The park land is owned by the city and will be developed as
part of the approved project. The park will be available for the Arden Hills
community to use. The exercise stations will be geared to seniors, allow users
to remain seated and have accessible options. One station will have play
equipment for children.
