Activities & Amenities at Chartwell Oak Ridges in Richmond Hill 

At Chartwell Oak Ridges, you’ll have all the comforts of home with the entertainment and amenities you might find at a resort. Our activity calendar is packed with so many opportunities to engage, explore, and connect at amenities that make gathering, socializing, and learning fun and easy. Our residents also appreciate that our activities are purely optional, so you can participate as much or as little as you like. If you’re not drawn to organized recreational programs, you might prefer casual conversations and spontaneous socials happening around the residence.

Participate in our engaging activities 

Our activity calendar is proof that we understand that our residents are a diverse group with varied interests. We offer a range of planned activities, which are a great place to meet new friends. If you love to stay active, you’ll find exercise classes ranging from Tai Chi to Rhythm ‘N’ Moves, a resident favourite featuring movement and music. Try our FitMinds program if you’re looking to keep your brain sharp, or enjoy our local visitors, from musical acts to guest speakers to companion dogs. We also offer day trips to enjoy shopping, outings to local attractions, or cultural destinations. 

The choice is always up to you. You may end your day in our gorgeous greenhouse or playing cards. Or maybe you’d prefer a morning in the library, afternoon in the pub playing billiards, then taking in a comedy in our screening room.
