Well organized social gatherings including summer barbecues, year round educational events, cultural outings, and an array of satisfying activities are offered for you to enjoy at your leisure. Scheduled transportation is available to assist with shopping, errands and other group excursions. Experience easy living and enjoy more free time. Upkeep on the buildings and grounds is included so you can spend your days on more leisurely pursuits.
