Garden Spot Village strives to be a good neighbor by welcoming people of all ages and graciously extending hospitality. We invite you to join in all the wonderful things that are happening here.

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