Activities & Amenities at The Sumach by Chartwell  

We tried to think of the amenities you’d appreciate most when we created The Sumach by Chartwell from the ground up. We have everything from gorgeous outdoor spaces, perfect for lounging, gardening, and watching movies under the stars, to indoor spaces like a modern fitness centre, stylish lounges, cozy activity rooms and billiards. Our calendar of activities caters to a wide variety of interests, whether you be active, entertained, curious, social, or spiritual. As always, our recreation programs are designed to be fun, engaging, and community-minded and they’re always optional.
