So much to do in the great outdoors

Connecting with nature is an important part of any fulfilling lifestyle. At The Overlook, residents find peace in outdoor activities like cross-country skiing along our trails, playing tennis, and taking their furry friends to the dog park. Growing vegetables or tending flowers in the community garden is a particularly popular activity among residents because there’s nothing quite as rewarding as getting your hands in the earth and growing something from nothing.
