Ankeny can be referred to as a city located in ‘Polk County, Iowa, US’.

Overall Guide : Blank Park Zoo Blank park Zoo’s mission is that of inspiring an appreciation regarding natural world; that too, via recreation, education, and conservation. The amenities that have been made available include double strollers, single strollers, and wheelchairs. It should be... more noted that strollers and wheel chairs can be availed of only on first come-first serve basis. This zoo goes on to contain a broad spectrum of wild-life; that too, in various exhibits. Timings This zoo remains open from Thursdays to Sundays between 10:00 and 16:00. Zoo TV All the excitement and fun regarding ‘Blank Park Zoo’ can be caught on Zoo TV. Every week, the host, i.e. Amy Burgmaier goes on to conduct a tour of animals as well as events of the zoo.

Overall Guide : Great community to live in...but property taxes are unreal and very expensive. This is partially due to building two high schools. Property taxes just continue to go up and never get any cheaper.
