Let La Posada help you take the mystery out of retirement!

For some, retirement is filled with uncertainty.  For others, retirement is the time to live well, reinvent oneself, and create new memories through new friendships, travels, and “dream jobs” (volunteering)!

Retirement is the time to choose what you want to do and how you wish to live everyday. Where you choose to live in retirement needs to meet your intellectual, social, and physical desires. Where you choose to retire needs to create wonderful memories.

Since 1987, La Posada at Park Centre offers 62+ retirees a self-directed lifestyle.  Our campus is the social hub of Green Valley while offering plentiful wellness activities with fine dining options:  gourmet, vegan and vegetarian meal choices.
