The most retirement lifestyle
options and the best care

Royal Gardens

For an active, independent lifestyle, Royal Gardens is an innovative approach to retirement living. Located in the west end of Peterborough, Royal Gardens is set on beautifully landscaped grounds in an established neighborhood of mature trees and upscale homes. When older adults move here, they exchange the chores of home and property maintenance for a carefree life in an upscale, resort-Royal Gardens prides itself in offering high quality accommodations and excellent services. We offer a full range of Lifestyle Options, including 24 hour on-site registered nursing and personal assistance if you need it. Short-term Respite and Convalescence visits are also available.

Active, Independent Living

Royal Gardens was designed with today's independent older adult in mind. Residents enjoy a variety of social events, including frequent planned outings, in-house movies, family gatherings, and friendly games of bridge. Unique to Royal Gardens, residents can also exercise in our state-of-the-art fitness center staffed by a qualified Fitness and Wellness Coordinator.

The beautiful Royal Atrium is the focal point for life at Royal Gardens. This bright and spacious indoor park includes a recreational games area and tearoom. You are sure to find the Royal Atrium one of your favorite places to be. The perfect place for social events, games, and gatherings of any sort, the sunlit three-story Atrium is host to regular Special Events such as concerts, health-fairs and art and craft shows. Enjoy billiards, shuffleboard, or practice your swing with our indoor golf net.

Trees, terraced gardens and a fountain make the Atrium a garden park within your own home. If the real outdoors call you, just step outside onto the patio to enjoy refreshments or a barbeque.
