New Urbanism


Prairie Trail, a planned urban development in Ankeny, Iowa, is leading the way in Central Iowa by embracing the concept of New Urbanism. At Prairie Trail you will find a true collaboration of builders, homeowners, developer, city and government and business.

There are many benefits of living in a New Urbanism development including a myriad small-town perks. Children can run and play at numerous parks, large and small. Friends wave from their front porches. Neighborhoods are designed for leisurely walking. Small shops are handy for easy access to coffee shops, restaurants, and small boutiques. Schools, a library, and a water park are close at hand, necessary and fun musts for busy families.
