Construction for Oceana PARC is well underway! We can’t wait to open our newest senior living community in the heart of White Rock.

A growing number of vibrant, independent seniors have already pre-leased the suite of their dreams and are getting set to call Oceana PARC home in summer 2019. As we count down to our opening, we’re taking a look at the things that make this seaside retirement community so extraordinary.

1. Stunning ocean and mountain views

If you’ve yet to experience living with ocean and mountain views, this is your time. Dazzling views begin as low as the third floor. Enjoy the view from your spacious balcony or large picture windows.

2. Well-designed suites

As the adage goes, the devil is in the details, and we take extreme care and consideration to ensure that all suites are designed with ergonomic features that are ideal for seniors. Think outlets and switches positioned at convenient heights, spacious doorways and bathrooms to move about with ease, and slip-resistant flooring and carpeting. Make sure you experience it for yourself when you visit the Oceana PARC presentation centre.

3. Flexible dining options

Oceana PARC will be home to three separate dining venues, depending on what you’re in the mood for: casual, elegant, and grab-and-go. Residents will be automatically enrolled into the PARC SELECT dining plan which gives you the flexibility to dine in or out, without having to worry about skipping meals. Of course, you still have the option to enroll in our more traditional all-inclusive dining plan, PARC CLUB if you wish.

4. Glorious outdoor space

There’s plenty of outdoor space to sit in the sun or shade. Avid golfers can practice getting a hole-in-one on the putting green, morning walkers will love taking their brisk stroll around the landscaped walking loop, and savvy gardeners will enjoy tending to plants and flowers in the greenhouse and gardens.

5. The convenient seaside neighbourhood

This central location within a revitalized seaside community truly has it all. You’re a mere hop and skip away from the Semiahmoo Shopping Centre, and within strolling distance to the White Rock Community Centre. Grocery stores, medical care, restaurants and boutiques are just outside your doorstep. The natural beauty of the White Rock pier and promenade are also close in proximity.

6. PARC ACTIVE – the first seniors-oriented fitness centre
