A Lifestyle You'll Love


Your dog will love it here, too. That’s right, Brenden Gardens is pet-friendly—and that’s just the beginning. Treat yourself to a fresh cut in the beauty salon and take the free shuttle into town to shop for the perfect outfit to match. Stimulate your mind by challenging the crew to Rummy in the Card Room and you’re your voice heard at Resident Council meetings. Just don’t forget to hang onto your “Brenden Bucks!” You’ll earn more by participating in community activities that can be spent at monthly auctions on items you’ll love. At Brenden Gardens, Everything you want and more is yours—and every day is full of purpose.
