Summer has arrived, and you and your family may already be considering how to celebrate the next major holiday now that Memorial Day has passed. Glen Oaks Community is filled with a wide range of amenities and sprawling outdoor spaces that make it possible to plan a memorable Fourth of July celebration the whole family will enjoy!

Soak up some sun on our walking trails

July in Clear Lake, Iowa, fills our community with long, sunny days that were made for spending time outside. Although there are plenty of parks and other outdoor recreational areas near Glen Oaks, we have several on-site private trails that make it easy to enjoy a warm, sunny day without going far from your living space. Whether your family is interested in a quick stroll to your favorite picnic spot or a longer walk that brings back memories of family hiking trips from decades ago, we have plenty of outdoor space available to enjoy as much of the summer weather as you want.

Splash in our pool

Our large indoor pool is a fun way for your entire family to cool off after enjoying a hot summer day, and it’s sure to become one of your grandkids’ favorite activities when visiting their grandparents at Glen Oaks. Whether you have competitive swimmers in your family who want to enjoy some lap swimming or you want to get a game of beach volleyball going, there’s plenty of space for everyone.

Enjoy a game of disc golf

If members of your family have a competitive streak, then our disc golf course is the perfect place for a friendly game. Explore the outdoors while getting in some exercise as you walk the course.

Relax in our community spaces

Traditional Fourth of July fun may involve spending as much time as possible outdoors, but spending the entire day in the heat isn’t for everyone. When you’re ready to bring your gathering indoors, our Atrium, Community Room, Silver Pines Club Room and other indoor communal spaces give you plenty of options for playing board games, working on crafts, browsing through family photos or simply catching up with loved ones. These spaces provide plenty of seating and natural light to create an atmosphere that feels like home.

End the day in our indoor hot tub

Relaxing with the people you love can be just as meaningful as doing something exciting, and our indoor hot tub provides the perfect way to unwind at the end of a long day. This extra-large hot tub is equipped with safety rails to prevent falls while entering and exiting and provides plenty of space for several people to enjoy a good conversation in our spa-like atmosphere. No matter what other activities you plan for your Fourth of July, catching up with the people in your life will likely turn out to be one of the most memorable parts of the day, and our peaceful hot tub is just the place to reflect on favorite memories from past holidays.

Whether you are planning a Fourth of July gathering that is packed with exciting activities or a quiet holiday filled with conversations and relaxation, Glen Oaks offers plenty of options for celebrating in the way that works best for your family without leaving home.
