Interest high in living a relaxing Regency lifestyle

ANN Hichens can't speak highly enough of the indoor pool at Regency Park Retirement Village.

She was one of the residents in the community area as 15 to 20 groups took advantage of open day to look at a complex which goes from strength to strength.

"The indoor pool is 32 degrees and good for relaxation, the spa is 37 degrees," she said.

"I go to aqua aerobics twice a week. It is fun in the pool."

Village manager Chris Newley said half of the visiting groups on Saturday were genuinely interested in moving to Regency Park.

"Two groups were going home to put their homes on the market," he said.

"Some were interested but not ready to move in."

Two more stages have been finished since last year's open day taking the number of units to 91.

The total project is for 212 units and a 90-bed nursing home with 40 high-care and 50 low-care beds.

"The nursing home will be completed in two years. It will be near Mel Gibson Park," Mr Newley said.

Neil and Margaret McKinnon were visitors at the open day and were impressed with the new Highgrove unit plans.

"So many people have moved here. It is a most attractive form of living," Mrs McKinnon said.

"While we are not planning to move now, it is good to keep up with what is happening."
