Surrounded by old-growth trees, Beaverdale Estates retirement community sits on a peaceful and welcoming senior living campus. Relax with a cup of tea on your balcony or join in on-campus activities. Our central location puts you under a mile from shopping, restaurants, and several churches, and just two miles from several healthcare providers including Mercy Franklin Center. When you feel like venturing out a little further, explore all that Des Moines has to offer. Tour the Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden, listen to the orchestra at the Civic Center of Greater Des Moines, or watch lions at the Blank Park Zoo -- all within a 20-minute drive of our independent living community. Grandkids will love the Science Center of Iowa and year-round events at the Iowa State Fairgrounds.
