"Living at The Park at
Trowbridge has been a
wonderful change for me. I felt
at home right away. I've enjoyed
my apartment much more than
I ever would have imagined.

First in a series


At first, I was worried that I'd
miss my old neighborhood. The
truth is that I've made a lot of
new friends through fitness
activities, crafts and other
things going on here.

My kids sometimes complain
that I'm never in my apaitnient
when they call, but I know it
puts their minds at ease that
I'm so busy.

Living at The Park at
Trowbridge is like being with
friends all day long. I never
dreamed my life could be
so much fun!"
