Our Communal Amenities
Available to be reserved, this room is perfect for clubs, parties, or other activites.

GVS built and purchased 75 raised beds for residents to grow their own food. 5 of the raised plots are a community garden initiative run by office staff and volunteers.
After each harvest, the produce from the community gardens is shared amongst seniors at Chown Place who face food insecurity or may not have the physical ability or time to garden full time.
Most residents also have a small garden space in the entry of their suites that they are free to turn into a garden with flowers or produce, as long as the area is looked after.
