Nine Amenities You’ll Love at a 55+ Apartment Community
Maintain an Active Lifestyle and Live in Luxury Apartments Near Houston
Moving out of your family home and into an active adult living community doesn’t mean that you have to resign yourself to your recliner for the rest of your days. In reality, apartment communities for active older adults are chock-full of fun things to do and see so you can stay active and live with freedom and independence.
At Larkspur Shadow Creek, a 55+ apartment community with luxury cottages for rent, too, you’ll find one of the longest lists of amenities available at any comparable community. We’ve taken into consideration what you’d like to do for relaxation and recreation and assembled it all for your enjoyment, near your new residence. Here are some of our favorite amenities we think you’ll love, too, as you live on your own terms here in Texas.
Swimming Pools and Lap Lane for Exercise
Swimming is an ideal form of exercise for active older adults because it’s gentle on the joints while improving muscle strength and tone. Even if you don’t participate in group water exercise, basic swimming or water walking can keep you in shape.
If you love swimming for exercise, the lap lane at the pool at Larkspur at Shadow Creek, in Pearland, Texas, is for you. Or, if you prefer more casual swimming or relaxing by the water, our large swimming pool will please you, too.
Raised Bed Gardens at Senior Apartment Communities
Plant lovers, rejoice! Don’t give up gardening just because you’ve downsized and sold your house in exchange for simplified living. Raised bed gardens grow just as much produce as regular ones, and let you keep your green thumb in good shape.
Plus, raised garden beds make it easy to plant, pull weeds, water, and harvest your crops without having to bend or crouch. Take it easy in your retirement, and take it easy in the garden, too.
Watch the Latest Films in a Dedicated Movie Theater
Excited to see the latest film, but don’t love the idea of driving home late after the movie ends? Active adult communities, like Larkspur at Shadow Creek near Houston, have their own movie theater where you can catch a new flick with a friend and be home before dark, without putting a key in your car’s ignition.
Plus, a movie theater dedicated to your community can help you maintain social distancing; you don’t have to mingle with the general public during a night at the cinema.
On-Site General Store with 55+ Apartment Essentials
Forget something on your shopping list? If you live in our resort-style 55+ community in Pearland, Texas, you don’t have to head back to the store to get what you need. Instead, visit the Larkspur General Store, open daily.
Inside, you’ll find apartment-living essentials, like paper products, cleaning supplies, snacks, beverages, and more. With a quick stop at the general store, you’ll have everything you need so you can spend the rest of your day enjoying the 18,000 square feet of amenities at Larkspur Shadow Creek.
Outdoor Games, like Shuffleboard, Bocce Ball, and Pickleball
Make new friends and learn a new game, or show off your skills and win a few rounds at our outdoor shuffleboard, bocce ball, and pickleball courts. All equipment is provided, and we think you’ll have a great time playing while getting to know your neighbors.
And with multiple courts for each game, you’ll never have to wait in line for your turn! (And if there’s a big crowd, remember our massive list of other fun things to do, right where you live!)
Luxury Apartment Finishes with Energy-Efficient Appliances
You’ve spent years maintaining your own home, and now it’s time that you relax when it comes to home repair and care. Our 24/7 maintenance service takes care of your luxury apartment home, which is complete with energy-efficient appliances, including your own washer and dryer.
At Larkspur Shadow Creek, we wanted our active adult living community to be welcoming and have everything you’d expect of your home – which is why we think you’ll be impressed with the quality of our apartment and luxury cottage interiors. In your apartment or cottage, you’ll get hardwood-style, easy-to-clean flooring, walk-in closets, a balcony or patio, granite countertops, and built-in pantries.
Daily Continental Breakfast for Active Adult Community Residents
For active adults on-the-go, breakfast is on us! Stop by our clubhouse to pick up piping hot coffee and a delicious pastry, plus other special breakfast items as you head out for a busy day enjoying one of our many amenities, or before you head into Pearland or Shadow Creek Ranch to enjoy the surrounding communities.
Stay Close to Home with an On-Site Salon and Fitness Center
Now that you’re in the best years of your life, you want to look and feel your best, too. The on-site hair salon and fitness center in active adult communities help you do both. You’ll be able to cultivate a relationship with a local hair stylist and achieve peak physical fitness, without leaving the luxury, resort-style community.
Socialize and Dine with Your Friends in Our Community Spaces or In Your Own Home
Looking to enjoy the company of your neighbors as you take in delicious hors d’oeuvres and a cold one on a warm Texas day? Our weekly happy hours with refreshments are the perfect time to do both.
You can also hire our private chef service to have your meals professionally prepared in your home, complete with a customized menu, grocery shopping, and clean-up! You can also purchase fresh deli foods and meals in our General Store if you don’t feel like driving into Pearland or Shadow Creek Ranch.
