Atmosphere

With Fall just around the corner, September’s featured residence is the perfect spot to take in the change of season. That’s because the expansive balcony views of Parkland on the Glen aren’t just great; they’re breathtaking. The building has 21-storeys where residents can glimpse walking paths lined with tons of trees and the daily hum of life below. Their stunning greenspace includes tastefully landscaped grounds, a lily pond and an outdoor terrace to soak it all in. It’s both peaceful and invigorating.

Liveliness is what I first noticed about Parkland on the Glen. As I entered the bistro area of the building, a group of residents called the Helping Hands were putting together a September newsletter while chatting over coffee and cookies. I got the sense that this was the type of community where everyone knew each other’s names, and it wasn’t hard to find your groove. 


Lifestyle consultant Grace Miksa, who has been with Parkland on the Glen since it first opened 12 years ago, says that her favourite part of her job is “meeting all the different people and helping them along with their next phase of life.” She spoke to me about the vibrancy of the community and how she feels honoured to be a part of it, “I just want our residents to feel like after all their years of taking care of others, they can finally live their best, worry-free lives.”

Highlights

The amenities at Parkland on the Glen are just as community-driven as they are cozy. You can picture friends and family gathered in their games room or fireplace lounge. Residents can catch up over events like wine and cheese socials and movie nights or take a moment for themselves at the Wellness spa and fitness centre. With this much to offer, Parkland on the Glen certainly has something for everyone. Grace points out that residents also have a lot of say in the community and can participate in groups such as resident council meetings, gardening committees, etc. What an incredible way to make a community your own.
