The Villages at Coverley is a vibrant community that promotes a healthy lifestyle and enhances the quality of life of its residents.

If you reside at The Villages at Coverley, then you live a short walk from the grocery store and restaurants, the gym, your child’s preschool and even a fully-equipped medical centre. “The Villages at Coverley makes it possible for you to walk everywhere,” says Sales Manager, Catherine Perkins. “Sidewalks, recreational areas and pedestrian-oriented streetscapes facilitate walking, running, biking and outdoor activities.”

“The homes are designed with large windows for natural light as well as green open areas,” indicates Perkins. “This is another component of our approach to open and healthy spaces.”

Social interaction provides positive effects too. Residents benefit from camaraderie with neighbours who frequently meet at the Recreation Centre and at community events, such as ‘Sippin’ on Jazz’, an evening of musical entertainment that recently took place in Coverley Square, or at the annual Christmas in The Villages event. Coverley Square is the ideal spot for such events; with lots of seating, covered as well as open-air areas, providing great ambience in addition to its close proximity to the surrounding businesses such as Fresh Market, Club Fitness, and Chicken Barn.

The community also hosts sporting events, such as The Villages Annual 5K Walk/Run in support of various charitable causes, including The Ark Animal Welfare Society, Breast Cancer Little Pink Gift Association, and Precious Touch Foundation, to name a few.
