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.
