Our Clubhouse, the gathering place for the community, houses the Meadowlark Dining Room, a lounge, social spaces, and meeting rooms equipped with audio-visual technology, with internet access throughout. The Clubhouse also includes the Fitness Center with pool and spa, a woodworking shop, our Library, and a Game Room. Our Community Garden, located adjacent to our park, has individual plots for residents who enjoy gardening.
The Clubhouse is the heart of our community. Here we gather with friends for lunch and dinner in the Meadowlark Dining Room and for activities including concerts, lectures, movies, television, discussion groups and committee meetings. The Clubhouse has Wi-Fi internet access, and each meeting space is equipped to support presentations and discussion. A large multi-purpose room includes a full kitchen, and the second-floor lounge has a fully equipped wet bar for resident use.
Our Fitness Center is accessible every day from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. and is furnished with a variety of up-to-date exercise equipment. There is an indoor spa and a handicapped-accessible heated pool with water-fitness classes and water volleyball. Our full-time fitness supervisor suggests individualized exercise regimes, teaches proper use of the equipment and leads a variety of complimentary exercise classes. (The pool and spa are closed Sundays and holidays when no staff is present.)
Kitchen Creek Community Garden
The Community Garden has centrally irrigated, raised planter boxes and berry rows as well as plots for special plantings such as squash and tomatoes and cut flowers. Additionally, we have shared areas for composting, attracting pollinators or growing flowers for use in the Meadowlark Dining Room and for gardeners to cut and take home.
Our well-equipped Woodshop allows residents to work on their own projects. In the past the woodworking group has joined together on projects such as the gazebo by the pond in Madeline Hill Park, shelving for our library and making wooden toys for tots. Our tools and workspace equal those of many professional shops.
Other Clubhouse Facilities
The Game Room is active morning to evening, with residents playing pool, ping-pong, poker, darts and Wii in spontaneous games or organized tournaments that draw enthusiastic audiences. The main room is easily configured from use for a crafts fair to an audience presentation or musical performance. Our Library in the Clubhouse is run by a group of dedicated residents who organize, maintain and constantly update a large collection of books, DVDs, audiobooks, and periodicals available to residents.
