No matter your age, we know that an active and independent lifestyle is key. After all, age is just a number!
With this in mind, we began St Laurence Park in Lara, genU’s retirement village.
How is St Laurence Park different? Well, we’ve incorporated inclusive community facilities and social programs (including a happy hour!) so that you can continue to enjoy life with others.
Features of St Laurence
Set on 42 acres of creek-side parkland in Lara, Victoria, St Laurence Park offers security and peace of mind. A Coles and a Woolworths, plus a variety of shops, are within easy walking distance to ensure you have access to all the important amenities.
We’ve got plenty of living options to suit a number of financial situations.
It consists of 119 fully self-contained units; 17 apartments and 1 holiday unit. A central Resident’s Activity Centre is a hub for many communal activities, including:
- Happy hours
- Movie nights
- Relaxing barbecues in the shaded outdoor area
- Hydrotherapy & day programs
- Book club
- Art & craft room
- Indoor bowls
- Music on the green
- Putting green
An active residents group offers activities ranging from bus trips and trivia afternoons to tai chi lessons and indoor bowls and much more.
A fully stocked library and craft shop are also key features of the park which provide opportunities for people to gather together. The community orchard and veggie patches have also become meeting places, as well as providing a source of fresh food for residents.
And (we’ve saved the best for last) pets are welcome! Bring along your 4-legged friend, and they can enjoy an off-leash paddock for dogs and an all-weather shelter shed for their owners.
Located in Lara (just 16 km from Geelong), you can enjoy all the amenities you’ll need, right on your doorstep, including:
