Summer VBS Kids Program


Our campus is open, inviting and welcoming to everyone! Please visit and participate in the excitement as often as you'd like.

A variety of interesting and engaging events are always happening at Garden Spot Village. Some are exclusively for residents so you have to live here to experience those, however, many are open to the public. Garden Spot Village strives to be a good neighbor; welcoming people of all ages, graciously extending hospitality. Come! Join in all the wonderful things that are happening here.

The Garden Variety is available online here! The Garden Variety is a monthly publication that typically includes "Resident Only" or "Future Resident" events, but it also serves as a window into our community.
