Active, happy community at friendly Caloundra Gardens

"A LITTLE bit of heaven among the beaches" is how manager Phyllis Hart describes the friendly community at Caloundra Gardens Retirement Village.

Established on the site 20 years ago, the village has changed its image and its name (from Little Mountain Home Park) to reflect the bright new social and environmental path it has taken. "I'd have to say it's one of the most friendly and socially-active retirement facilities I have experienced," Phyllis says. "Working here is as pleasurable as living here"

The village enjoys a range of facilities including a bowling green (with its own greenkeeper), a croquet club, table tennis, gym and health activities, and special women's interests such as craftwork, quilting, art, painting and dancing.

The village's active social club runs a happy hour every Thursday, dinner-dance each month and a sausage sizzle once a month.

In the warmer months, there's aerobics every morning in the swimming pool.

Residents have a bus service to the centre of Caloundra twice a week - Monday and Thursday - with trips to Maroochydore every second month.

Caloundra Gardens are also pet friendly.

Contact Phyllis on 5492 5600 or caloundragradens@gmail.com both the email and the website, www.caloundragardens.com.au, will be active from July 1.
