7 facilities you’ll love at Downsizing Communities

Date Posted: August 31, 2022

Downsizing Communities feature a host of resort-style amenities that not only make you feel like you’re on holiday every day, but help you stay fit and healthy with ease. From indoor pools, to gyms, tennis courts, bowling greens, walking trails and more, you’ll be spoiled for choice when it comes to opportunities to get social and active.

It’s important to note that all Land Lease Communities are different, and so the on-site facilities may vary. We recommend doing your own research and taking a tour of the communities you’re interested in, to ensure they have the facilities you desire.

Here are 7 lifestyle-enhancing facilities you’ll love when you call a Downsizing Community home:

  1. Community clubhouse

Many communities have a clubhouse or community centre which houses a range of meeting areas and high quality lifestyle facilities.

The clubhouse is often the heart of the community, with neighbours and friends gathering to socialise, play games, watch films and enjoy each other’s company.

From community sporting events and BBQs, to movie nights, games nights, exercise classes, happy hour and more, there’s so much fun to get involved in at the community clubhouse.

The beauty of living in a Downsizing Community is that there’s a whole range of activities available, and you get to choose how much or how little you’d like to take part in.

  • Bowling greens and tennis courts

Whether you’re a lawn bowls buff or a tennis ace, having access to sporting facilities and courts is a fantastic opportunity. There’s no better way to stay in shape, have fun and share your passion with other devotees than partaking in your favourite sport or hobby.

  • Community bus

From community-wide excursions to local shopping trips, your community bus will take you where you want to go! This facility is especially useful for those who don’t drive or want to enjoy their day out without the hassle of driving.

  • Cinema

Watching a great film on the big screen is such a fun experience – and having a private cinema on your doorstep makes it all the more enjoyable! Don’t forget to bring the popcorn!

  • Indoor pool

From swimming laps to kickstart your morning, to splashing around when the grandkids come to visit, and taking a leisurely dip to unwind after a long day, the indoor pool is the perfect place to soak, splash and swim.

  • Gymnasium

Whether you’re looking to tone up, reach a certain step count or just have some fun while getting active, you can take a step closer to your wellness goals at the Community Gym.

  • Library and computer room

If you work from home or on a hybrid schedule, the community library and computer room are great facilities, offering a quiet place to get some work done and a printer for the times you need it.
