Centrally located in the heart of Augusta, the small, intimate community of Serenity Gardens rests on 7 ½ acres within Maine’s capital city. Recent renovations include new water lines, pavement and landscaping and residents enjoy access to great public transportation, making it easier to enjoy the attractions and amenities of the city. The 55 and over community of Serenity Gardens offers affordable housing and financial peace of mind in one of the fastest growing regions of the state.
Maine’s burgeoning capital of Augusta (population 18,500) serves 70,000 people statewide and boasts first-rate schools, safe neighborhoods and progressive medical facilities. The median age of Augusta is 40.3 years, and the city is replete with services to accommodate the older, well-established community. Serenity Gardens is located within miles of a new, under-construction 600,000 square-foot, $380 million regional hospital, the recently-completed, state-of-the-art 59,000 square-foot Harold Alfond Center for Cancer Care and the U.S. Veterans Hospital.
There’s no shortage of culture in Augusta, either! The shopping mecca of Augusta Marketplace (servicing a population of 250,000) is minutes away, as is the Turnpike Mall. It’s a pleasant drive on recently renovated roadways to Maine’s two largest seaside towns – Portland one hour to the south and Bangor one hour to the north – and only 3 1/2 hours to Boston. Augusta is within a 20-minute drive to 5 major colleges and universities. Unique festivals, award-winning restaurants and nationally-renowned antique shopping offer interesting cultural attractions.
The gateway to outdoor adventure, Augusta is within striking distance of the ocean, mountains, forests and thousands of lakes, and offers outdoor activities like kayaking, golf, fishing, snowmobiling, cross country skiing and hiking to keep residents and their visitors entertained year-round. Augusta sits on the banks of the rejuvenated Kennebec River, a modern-day ecological success story, with wildlife population numbers rivaling one hundred years ago.
