Nestled between the Hudson River and the Battenkill, Greenwich is located just east of our senior living community, but this rural paradise is worlds apart from the bustling city of Saratoga Springs. Rolling hills, rivers, streams and family-owned farms dot the landscape, while the Battenkill river offers clear and gentle waters for fly fishing and canoeing.
Looking for farm-fresh produce? Residents in our independent senior living communities at Woodlawn Commons and the Embury Apartments are close enough to pick their own fruits and vegetables at a Greenwich farm, or visit the many local farm stands and Farmers Markets throughout the summer and fall.
For music lovers, there are summer concerts in Mowry Park, and music and theater events at Hubbard Hall in the neighboring community of Cambridge. Many seniors also enjoy the old-fashioned shopping experience on Main Street with its unhurried pace, friendly shopkeepers and specialty goods. History buffs are drawn the area, as well, for its role in the Revolutionary War, French and Indian War and the Underground Railroad.
Greenwich is most widely known as the home of the Washington County Fair – held every August, it is one New York State’s biggest and best. The fairgrounds also host many craft fairs, antique fairs and flea markets each year.
Whether you want to spend the day on a farm, or fly fishing in the Battenkill, our independent senior living community near Greenwich is a great place to live.
