Park Creek Independent Living Offers Residents a Family atmosphere with Lots of Amenities

Kathie Snyder, independent living director of Cypress’ Park Creek Independent Living, likes to refer to the complex as a “cruise ship on land.” One look at the amenities the 126-unit apartment complex offers shows she’s telling the truth.

Residents live a busy, social life of purpose and independence with like-minded peers, enjoying luxury amenities that include an exercise gym, hair salon, movie theater, two restaurants and a pool with a barbecue pit. And a new man cave is being planned.

“We have a lot going on here,” Kathie says. “There are painting and crafting classes, garden and book clubs, walking and exercise classes, and we have dollar bingo twice a week!”

A meal plan is also included, allowing residents to choose from four different menus prepared by a culinary-trained chef.

The recently opened community has new residents moving in all the time who want to take advantage of the active-but-cozy vibes, Kathie says. During the holidays, people look for a family-style atmosphere that makes them feel at home. Park Creek offers a guest suite, a private dining room, and they love to welcome families to visit.

“We’ve become a big family here,” she says. “Some residents, especially if they’re moving out of a house, are hesitant to downsize to an apartment. But every one of them, after settling in, wonders why they didn’t do it 10 years sooner!”

Residents, who are 55 years old and “better,” as Kathie puts it, are high-energy and intelligent. Most everyone still drives, but with a meal plan included and a community with a slew of amenities, they rarely need to.

Notably, each unit comes with an Amazon Alexa. Residents can hear what’s on the chef’s menus, choose from the day’s activities and contact the concierge 24 hours a day. And for those who still work, most of the apartments have office space, which a lot of the residents make great use of.

“Our family of residents is enjoying the best years of their lives in our community, and we are honored to share in their passion every day,” Kathie says.
