Activities

An array of activities for every interest
At Rowntree Gardens, we offer a full calendar of activities designed to promote the physical, emotional and spiritual well-being of our community members. With an onsite Activities Director, our activities are carefully planned to provide a variety of options for people through every season of life. Whatever your interests or talents, you’ll find plenty of opportunities to develop, express and explore them among friends and neighbors who share your love for life.

Our Activities Director carefully chooses and plans activities that meet the needs of community members at different levels of care. Click on the appropriate link below to view activities calendars for every season of life.

We fully understand the impact the COVID-19 virus has had on our community and the world around us. Our priority continues to be keeping our Community Members and Community Staff as safe as possible. With guidance from our licensing authorities and the Centers for Disease Control, we have made the decision to postpone all group activities at this time. Our Activity and Community Life departments are working together to ensure that our Community Members have resources available for personal, recreational and spiritual growth. When it is safe to do so, we look forward to resuming our regular Activity and Events calendars. Until then, please click here and you’ll see a list of some creative ways in which our teams are keeping our Community Members engaged and thriving during this time.
