Activities & Amenities at Chartwell Bowmanville Creek in Bowmanville 

We have a lot going on at Chartwell Bowmanville Creek! Our residence is a lively and vibrant place, with a full complement of optional activities and amenities on offer, allowing you to participate as much, or as little, as you please. With a heated indoor pool, indoor putting green, demonstration kitchen, as well as several spots perfect for impromptu socializing, our residence offers a small slice of resort-like living. 

We offer a selection of activities from our LiveNow life enrichment program that includes many meaningful experiences, all of which are based on the six dimensions of wellness—physical, social, emotional, intellectual, spiritual, and vocational. For example, our signature Rhythm ‘N’ Moves and FitMinds classes are purposefully designed to engage, inform, entertain, and challenge you!

Participate in our engaging activities 

What would you like to do today? The day is young and so is our mindset at Chartwell Bowmanville Creek! We offer a grand selection of activities, events, outings, and socials to interest, engage, challenge, and inspire you. It’s easy to keep fit when you can choose from chair yoga, Tai Chi, or gentle exercises on the patio, to name a few classes. Learn something new in our FitMinds workshop or “Today in History” classes. We offer chess, trivia, Scrabble, and Bridge sessions too, as well as musical get-togethers. You’ll see us enjoying movie nights, ice cream socials, and Happy Hours, as well as outings for some retail therapy, picnics, and some of the events that our vibrant Bowmanville community has to offer. We’re fortunate too that Rotary Park is steps away, so we can enjoy regular summer performances and festivals. Our goal is to offer you an enriching and engaging lifestyle on your terms, including simply relaxing in your suite or with a drink in our pub.

Our dedicated amenity spaces provide the foundation for our relaxed and active retirement lifestyle, making it easy to enjoy your pursuits and socialize with friends without worrying about inclement weather or transportation. For example, can you see yourself floating in our heated indoor pool? Or practicing your swing on our putting green? How about staying fit in our exercise studio, or taking in a classic flick in our movie theatre with its comfy seating? You can enjoy cooking demonstrations or doing your own baking in our demonstration kitchen, or relaxing with a libation in our pub. We have a library, hair salon, and if you have overnight guests, our guest room is another convenient optional amenity we offer. Outdoors, our walking path, manicured garden, patio, and green space give our residence a tranquil feel, and are perfect spots to walk your dog..
