Timber Pines senior community broke ground

Timber Pines ground breaking ceremony

Walker Methodist and partnering organizations joined together on Thursday, December 5, for a Groundbreaking Ceremony for the new Timber Pines Senior Community. Because of winter conditions, the team hurled snow, rather than the traditional dirt, into the air.

The senior living community is expected to open in the spring of 2021.

Timber Pines is owned by Silver Creek Senior Communities, and this is the second community Walker Methodist will manage for the group. The first venture, Rushseba Station (opening in the spring of 2020) and Rushseba Landing (currently open), sit together on one campus in Rush City, Minn. Also partnering in this effort are CBS Construction and Kaas Wilson Architects.

“When we look for people and companies to partner with to spread our mission, we look for those who share our values. That is why we are pleased to be partnering with these people and organizations that are putting people first,” said Walker Methodist President and CEO Scott Riddle.

Timber Pines will feature 103 senior apartments, including independent living, assisted living, and memory care. The new community will enjoy amenities including Harriet’s Deli, T.B. Walker Grill, a salon, a state-of-the-art fitness center, a community patio, arts and crafts studio, library, and fireside lounge.

“We are bringing a fresh approach to senior living to Pine City. That starts with a beautiful building—and this one will be spectacular!” said Riddle. “What Walker Methodist brings to Timber Pines is our mission of enhancing people’s lives.”

Walker Methodist works to enhance lives by serving great food, focusing on wellness and fitness, providing excellent clinical care, creating meaningful programming and activities, and by working with people who care and treat everyone with respect and dignity. “Ours is a noble pursuit,” said Riddle.
