Life enrichment thrives at the Gardens. Without the worry of home maintenance or escalating health care costs or needs,Gardens residents have the freedom to reallocate their time and reorder their priorities in order to enrich and expand their lives. Through the company of similarly engaged individuals and the ease of pursuing new interests, or spending more time on old favorites, residents continually expand their lives in ways that bring enjoyment and fulfillment. More than 80 resident-initiated and managed committees are built around shared intellectual, artistic, cultural, health, recreational and spiritual interests, many supported by special purpose on-campus facilities and resources. In addition, residents have easy access to the diverse educational and cultural offerings at the nearby world-renowned Claremont Colleges as well as venues throughout the greater Los Angeles area.
