According to the 2012 Citizen Survey, 93% of residents rate Ankeny as a great place to live.
Living, working, residing, staying in a place for an extended period of time… these words define a resident. Ankeny residents reside and value family, neighbors, neighborhoods and community.
Our neighborhoods reveal a rich Iowa history, leaders who have "stepped out" to make a difference, eclectic shopping areas and restaurants with fine food and fantastic flavors. Ankeny parks, where the echo of children's voices and the joggers' fading footsteps, can be heard on any given day in Ankeny.
Schools, medical facilities, businesses and arts and entertainment attractions add to the community flavor.
Ankeny embraces its residents; and in the words of Mayor Van Oort, "Ankeny is a genuine community of partnerships where people work together to maintain our enviable sense of community."
You, the residents of Ankeny…are bringing it all together.
