About GEF Meadowlark Place

One of the prime attractions of this lodge is that it is all on one main floor. With just 58 accessible, single and double suites, Meadowlark Place exudes a close-knit, family atmosphere. The mature, park-like grounds surrounding the building provide a beautiful backdrop for residents to enjoy year-round. Common areas include a games room complete with a shuffleboard, exercise room, hair salon, crafts room, and laundry rooms. With a recreation coordinator on-site, there is always a fun program going on. Resident favourites include giant crossword, java club, tai chi, yoga, bingo, and pub nights. There is a beautiful new gazebo in the south yard.

About this neighbourhood

The Meadowlark and Elmwood neighbourhood is an older residential neighbourhood with mature trees and shrubbery. The area is accessible for walking in the neighbourhood safely. The Meadowlark Lodge is nestled in a well-kept, park-like setting.

The neighborhood is very community based. Schools, daycares and organized children’s groups, such as Sparks are all around and often visit the lodge. On those visiting days, there is heightened joy in the lodge. It is a delight seeing the groups able to walk to and from the lodge for the visit.
