I toured the facility a few days ago around non time (lunch time). I got to see the dining room with most residents. It was magical. The facility is very clean and the employees are all so friendly. The rates are fair and the services are fantastic.
Also the grounds staff that handles the lawns, flowers, and beautiful landscape. The Transportation staff that takes the residents to various locations.

I love it here in the Gardens at Park Balboa. Before, my plan was to go back to the Philippines because getting a live-in main and driver is affordable and my "dollars" (pension) would go a long way. But there is no need for me to do that. As i have been telling my friends, I have a good life here at GPB - someone to clean my room, cook my food, etc. etc.
I've been living at the Gardens for 5 years and have been happy here meeting new friends and enjoying a variety of activities. The gardens flowers, trees are pleasant to be around and view from my patio.
We chose The Gardens because of the good price point and what they were able to offer. They promised a lot of things and actually followed through and met our expectations. I feel so relieved and it has given me great peace of mind. They do have tons of activities provided for the residents and a great variety. I would highly recommend them to others looking.
The meals are good and they have delicious cookies. They come with small refrigerators and other cabinets. The activities are fun, especially poker. EVERYONE IS NICE IN THE COMMUNITY!
I lived here for a long time. I cannot complain, the residents here are all nice. The food is really good and if you do not like something like the special of the day, the kitchen staff will make you a different meal. Everyone here is really good, so friendly. I am lucky to be here.
I am newer at The Gardens. The Gardens are very beautiful. The staff is very gracious. The activities are great. Especially enjoy the painting classes. [name removed] and [name removed] have went out of their way to help me! the food is very good and kitchen staff very kind!
My name is [name removed] and I'm fairly new to The Gardens. So far I had a good taste of the community, the staff is very good. [name removed] the buisness office director and the marketing director [name removed] are very friendly. The community is very quiet, and some activities are fun. (except bingo im not a fan) But the painting class is good.
I would tell others that the director here is very responsive to any concerns or issues you may have and seems to be very on top of things with her residents. I would recommend this facility to others looking.
