Pictures of Our Community:

We are conveniently located in the midst of the Broad River shopping district and adjacent to a park with tennis courts. Prior to opening as a residence in 1982, our building had been an elementary school. Public transportation is limited, though residents may take advantage of van services offered by the City of Norwalk, including daily transport to and from Senior Center.

*Note: Entrance to building is from Harris Street ??? around the block.
