Set in sprawling, well-treed parkland beneath the San Gabriel Mountains, Westminster Gardens is unlike any other senior community: dynamic and diverse, celebrating active leisure amidst inspiring natural beauty.
The moment you enter Westminster Gardens, you can see how this unique community earned its name: there are flowers everywhere, including more than 2,000 rosebushes. And as you walk the pathways between cottage-like residences spread out over 32 gently rolling acres, you wind your way among hundreds of fruit trees: apples, oranges, Asian pears, avocados and persimmons.
In these tranquil surroundings, residents stay active with every type of outdoor pursuit—gardening, of course, and also walking, biking, swimming and a wide range of fitness programs. You can even play a game of tennis on the community’s private court.
Westminster Gardens may feel like a semi-rural retreat, but the community is deeply connected to the heart of Southern California. The surrounding town of Duarte, on historic Route 66, provides easy access to all of Los Angeles County. Just hop onto the 210 Freeway and in no time you can have your pick of renowned cultural and entertainment venues. Visit the Walt Disney Concert Hall or the Huntington Library. See the spectacular Degas collection at the Norton Simon Museum. Hunt for treasures at the Rose Bowl Flea Market. And spend great days with family or friends at the Los Angeles Zoo or Universal Studios or Dodger Stadium.
In short, Westminster Gardens offers the best of two worlds: The beauty of a natural woodland area right at the edge of your patio. And easy access to some of the finest cultural, recreational, dining and shopping opportunities that you’ll find anywhere.
