Know Your Neighborhood: Ashley Acres, Waukee
The last year has really shown how valuable it is to love your neighborhood. When you are not able to travel as much as you would like, feeling good about where you live is even more important. NorthRidge Homes is currently building in Ashley Acres, Waukee, a brand new community in one of the fastest growing areas in Iowa. You will soon see there is so much to love here!
- Radiant Elementary School – grades K-5
- Waukee Middle School – grades 6-7
- Prairieview School – grades 8-9
- Northwest Waukee High School – grades 10-12
The Waukee School District is consistently named one of the top school districts in the state, and students in the Ashley Acres development will attend the brand new Northwest Waukee High School, which is slated to open in fall 2021!
The Waukee YMCA is just a short bike ride away, with classes and activities for the whole family. Plus, Waukee itself is home to 15 parks, including the new Alice Nizzi park with a giant plate of spaghetti and meatballs as a nod to the beloved Waukee community fixture who owned Alice’s Spaghetti Land.
You do not need to venture to downtown Des Moines for a special date night! Waukee has tons of local restaurants to try, including El Guapo’s Tequila + Tacos. It’s a great spot for dinner and drinks.
If you’re in the mood for a movie, Waukee’s Palms Theatres & IMAX features the largest screen in the entire state of Iowa! Like many other luxury movie theaters built in the last few years, you can enjoy a glass of wine, beer, cocktail or even a full dinner while enjoying the movie too.
Waukee takes the Fourth of July seriously! The annual celebration includes a parade and several days of fun at Centennial Park, with live music, a carnival, food vendors and of course fireworks. Other favorite community events include the Waukee Arts Festival and movies in the park.
