With the most spacious suites, the largest variety of floor plans, and the most beautiful and bright buildings, no retirement community in Peterborough and the Kawarthas can match The Gardens of Peterborough. Next to the quality of our Care services, our facilities are the thing we are most proud of—and they are what set us apart from all
the others. We can also offer an unmatched choice of locations. For proximity to everything that matters including restaurants, shopping, churches, the local hospital, medical centres and public transit at the front door, come and see for yourself.
It's Your Choice
Each of our retirement communities offers a full range of lifestyle options and each is unique in the features they offer. Located downtown close to shops, restaurants and theatres,
Empress Gardens offers a traditional and affordable retirement experience in a cozy home-like environment. For a more luxurious approach, consider
Princess Gardens, which overlooks the Otonabee River and is adjoined to the Peterborough Square Mall. In the west-end, close to the Peterborough Regional Health Centre hospital is
and our newest community,
Canterbury Gardens, with its innovative
salt water therapy pool.
At The Gardens, you can live where you want, how you want. Visit our Lifestyle Options section to see how you can maximize your independence and live the lifestyle you have earned. From our innovative, independent Garden Homes alternative that only The Gardens can offer, to spacious suites with beautiful views of the river - the choices are endless. And if you need help with medications or
have other challenges with daily living, we are here for you. Explore our Health & Care Services section to learn about our 24 hour on-site nursing care and the
many other health services we provide.
The Luxury of Bright, Open Space
Once of the most unique design elements of The Gardens of Peterborough is how much bright, open space there is. We encourage you to compare. Only The Gardens offers more than 60% "common areas" in our retirement communities. Our beautiful, spacious Atriums are indoor parks which provide a pleasant place to walk or sit and have a chat in the sunlight amidst plants, trees, and fountains. The perfect place for social events, games, and gatherings of any sort, the Atriums become a lovely focal point for our communities.
Our communities are designed to provide a multitude of places to gather for chats with friends and family, to sit quietly beside a fire with a good book, and for our frequent social activities. Choose among our many tearooms, fireside lounges, patios, decks and licensed lounge areas. Our dining rooms are tastefully designed and offer the ideal balance of bright open space and privacy. All common areas are wheelchair accessible.
One of the things our residents comment on most frequently is how "clean" our buildings are. Our staff takes
a great deal of pride in these comments and they are always happy to attend to your every need.
For Body, Mind and Spirit
Our communities also offer features to pamper your body, mind and spirit. Indulge yourself in our beauty salons or exercise in our fitness facilities. Enjoy a good book
from the library or do some "surfing" on the internet in
the computer rooms. Join in the fun in our activities/games rooms, or relax and enjoy a favorite film in our movie theatre rooms. Repose quietly in front of the fireplace or watch a video on the big screen TV. Rack up a game of billiards with your neighbour or your grandson. The Gardens of Peterborough are ideal for older adults who refuse to compromise on lifestyle.
For spiritual enrichment our non-denominational chapels provide a
special area for those who wish a quiet place for private
conversation, meditation or prayer. We hold regular services
conducted by local clergy in our chapels. Or, if you prefer,
the Gardens own air-conditioned bus offers regular transportation to local churches.
Pets Are Part of the Family
At The Gardens of Peterborough we recognize how important it is for your well-being and happiness to bring your pet with you to your new home. We have a pet-friendly policy at all of our locations, so both you and your pet will find your new home as comfortable as possible.
