A Legacy Needs to be Finished…The Center Stage!

Come closer…We have some exciting news just for our family and friends!

A legacy needs to be finished…The Center Stage in La Posada’s Central Park.

Beginning in early 2019, the La Posada Foundation will be launching a capital campaign to build out Central Park to include Center Stage. We will be seeking donors to assist us in making this feature available to the campus community.

Center Stage in Central Park

Center Stage is a covered stage offering 115 raised seats for guests under a retractable awning with overhead lighting.

The Center Stage offers the community a chance to enjoy al fresco entertaining safely and comfortably under the Arizona skies. From outdoor movie nights to Zumba classes to sing-along’s, Center Stage offers new cultural options to enjoy.

Living in Arizona is about being outside…The La Posada campus needs a place to celebrate living in the Sonoran desert.

Resident Reflections…A SELF-CONTAINED COMMUNITY

A SELF-CONTAINED COMMUNITY
is where I am fortunate to live
the last segment of my life—
a community of seven hundred residents
and five hundred employees, like a little town
on this one hundred fifty acres of property,
with all the food and shelter services provided,
three libraries, an observatory, a little store,
along with online shopping for personal needs,
and if I want to go outside my little town
to shop or see doctors or the larger library
I can ride the bus or the van provided
for those purposes.
I can walk or ride on the tram around
the grounds of my little town
for they are some of the most compelling features,
containing pecan trees and green grass
and multi-colored flowers,
walking trails for visiting meditation and poetry
and butterfly gardens, and even a coffee shop
for meeting friends from the larger communities,
ramadas and benches for sitting to rest,
and changing views from mountains to a river,
usually a dry river bed where one could study earth science
or wait for the excitement of water running in rainy weather.
And then the levels of care available if and when I need them—
I am grateful.

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. We offer present and future residents maintenance-free apartments, Garden Homes, and Park Centre Homes with over 30 floor plan options.

Some Christmas Gifts Require You to Look Down!

The present is here
It is always here–now.
I close my eyes
and be the one with the present.
The present—a gift.
I breathe in the air around me
I breathe out.
My breath joins other breaths.
I ponder.
My eyes are wide open.
I see this glorious creation.
Here! NOW!
THE PRESENT.
THE GIFT.

-The Gift by La Posada resident Norma Strait
