Winner: Mahogany

Accessibility is key when looking at neighbourhoods that are well-suited for seniors: not just in regard to housing, but also to recreational and community-building amenities for an active and healthy life. The southeast lake community of Mahogany has, in recent years, established itself as one of the city’s most desirable addresses for active seniors to age in place. Jayman BUILT hub Westman Village provides a range of housing, from lock-and-leave condominiums through residences for varying levels of independent living (including memory care). Amenities in the village hub include a jazz club, golf simulator and Chairman’s Steakhouse (one of Avenue’s Best Overall Restaurants picks for 2023), while the greater community of Mahogany has a 22-kilometre pathway network, beach club, non-motorized water recreation opportunities, and more.
