A large outdoor garden, adjacent to the front entrance, was designed for special events, small gatherings and recreational activities for the residents of the community as well as their care givers and family members. Opportunities for developing a garden area were limited by the steep slopes which adjoin the property. This area was carved out of an area adjacent to the front entrance. The garden is highly used by the elders of the community. Staff organize wine and cheese parties, concerts and cook-outs for the elders on a regular basis.
