What is Pine Meadows About?
Minutes away from the charming Scottish heritage town of Fergus, the univerity town of guelph and the spectacular beauty of the Elora Gorge, is Pine Meadows, an established adult lifestyle community near Lake Belwood.
Residents in the 195 homes have better things to do with their time than cut lawns or shovel snow. The community of one and two-bedroom bungalows that vary in style – all with garages, basements, over-sized windows and geo-thermal heat pumps for maximum heating and cooling efficiency – is nestled on acres of luscious green space.
The 12,000-square-foot community recreational centre has an indoor swimming pool with a hottub and sauna, exercise room, library and lounge area, billiard hall, kitchen and a crafts room with sewing machines. The Grand Hall serves as a main community gathering place for dinners, concerts, craft shows and many other activities.
Those with other interests can join the many ongoing groups, which range from carving, woodworking, bridge, horseshoes and shuffleboard, to theatre, swimming, pickleball and tennis. The activities spring from the passions of the residents. Every Wednesday morning, there is Koffee Klatch that invites conversation, entertainment and, frequently, speakers.
The real beauty is that residents can decide for themselves what they’re interested in and do it.
Although there’s something for everyone at Pine Meadows – with Stratford, Guelph, Kitchener and Toronto all close by, it’s very central to almost anything you might be interested in.
But the real appeal of Pine Meadows goes beyond the built-in conveniences and features.
It’s the caring people in the community that makes Pine Meadows a great retirement community.
