When you’re an active adult, it’s only natural to want to participate in activities that keep you moving, entertained and that utilize all of your senses. Also, you’ll likely want to have numerous options available to prevent life from becoming stagnate or repetitious. Since you no longer have the housekeeping maintenance you once had as a homeowner, you have more free time on your hands than ever before. What will you do with all that time?
The Community and Wellness Center is an exclusive center just for the residents at Glen Oaks Community. The center houses a Wellness Center, complete with showers and lockers, an indoor heated swimming pool, a gym, fitness room and hot tub. The full-size gymnasium includes a basketball court that can also be used for pickle ball, corn hole and walking, as well as exercise classes. The fitness room houses workout equipment including treadmills, weights, kettlebells, mats, stationary bikes, and exercise balls. There is also NuStep® cross training equipment, which can help residents regain leg and arm mobility after an accident or injury and can also be used to build muscle.
If you’re interested in group exercise classes, then you’re in luck! The Wellness Center provides Sit and Be Fit Exercise classes throughout the week. New activities are added monthly to ensure new Residents favorite activities are added to the mix. We ensure your active lifestyle is met to the fullest with a wide variety of exercise and fun activities to keep you busy at Glen Oaks Community.
The Wellness Center is also equipped with an indoor walking path, providing added convenience and a smooth, walking surface. Our community is air conditioned and heated for when outside conditions are too wet, hot, or cold for an outdoor walk or run. If the weather conditions are favorable, there are outdoor hiking, biking, and running trails within walking distance of the community, stretching for miles, with beautiful scenery around every corner. The lake is close by for those who want a 14-mile bike around the lake for some spectacular lake views. You can stay at the Community and play an outdoor 18 course Frisbee Golf game in a beautiful, wooded area.
If you’re looking for more indoor activities, visit the Silver Pines Club Room, where you can host game nights or sport parties and utilize our big screen TV, pool table, electric dart board, card tables, and bar and beverage area. For a little more peace and tranquility, visit the library complete with a computer, printer, and a separate quiet reading area. Lastly, there is the Atrium, which is used for resident events, such as get-togethers and parties, game nights, puzzles, luncheons, meetings, and other social activities.
Residents can enjoy a “Night at the Movies” in our very own theater room, just down the hall from the Silver Pines Club Room and Library. Bring your own DVD or watch one from the Netflix or Prime libraries while enjoying popcorn and beverages while you relax in the lounging soft theater chairs with amazing surround sound.
Group activities are posted on the monthly Activity and Wellness Calendars or bring your family and enjoy the amenities on your own. You can reserve any of the many amazing spaces as a Resident of Glen Oaks Community. The Glen Oaks Community staff provides a relaxing and comfortable environment where you are free to either be a part of all the group excitement or enjoy the activities with just your spouse, family members or close friends. When you reside with us, you and your family members enter into the Glen Oaks Community family for life!
