Community Overview

Think of Collington as an extension of your personal lifestyle. Here you’ll enjoy the beauty of 125 wooded acres in your choice of private residences. Enjoy a charming single-story cottage or villa with a private entrance from a landscaped courtyard, or an apartment in a mid-rise building with a patio or balcony overlooking our six-acre lake, native trees, walking trails and beautiful gardens.

At Collington, you’ll discover a dynamic environment that nurtures curiosity, embraces knowledge and encourages personal growth.

Collington’s unique Life Plan Community combines independent living today with the peace of mind knowing your needs will be met in any circumstance you may encounter in the future.
