Community life

The best thing about our community is the way it brings residents together to have fun. Friends gather to watch the evening news in our lounge. Local engineering students often join us for breakfast and offer tech support sessions for residents. Musicians provide happy hour entertainment. These moments of connection and community are what set us apart and make The Wellington at Arapaho a special place to retire.
