This is the entrance to the Pasadena Village, one of many such retirement complexes that have been built in the Adelaide metropolitan area in recent years.
This complex consists of 47 new two and three bedroom houses with features such as a lock up garage with a door into the house, a security system and access to emergency medical assistance. The houses have ducted airconditioning and modern fittings. The gates into the Village also have a security system installed for residents' peace of mind after hours.
The residents have access to shared facilities like the park shown here; a barbecue are and a bowling green. Also on site is a large community room where residents may choose to socialise.
I know some people who live in such a village and they love the lifestyle. In a village like this neighbours would get to know each other more easily that in general suburbia.
