About Walker Methodist Plaza

Plaza is one of Walker Methodist’s 10 living senior communities located across the Twin Cities metro. Serving older adults since 1945, we are a faith-based, non-profit organization focused on being a great place to live for our Residents and work for our employees. Plaza is the perfect example of both. As a retirement community, Plaza is a housing complex designed for adults who are generally able to care for themselves, with the option to receive assistance as needed. The community is robust with activities and socialization for Residents seeking connection and involvement. 

The neighborhood where Plaza is located offers the comforts of a quaint downtown combined with the conveniences of city living. Within walking distance or easy transportation routes are places like Sparky’s Café, the Grass Roots Co-op, Two Scoops Ice Cream, Truffles and Tortes, Anoka County Historical Society, the Armory, and the confluence of the Rum and Mississippi Rivers.
