Are your grandkids visiting your senior community in Austin this summer? There are many options to keep them happy this summer!
Are your grandkids visiting you this summer and you want to make sure you have options of things to do together? One of the many benefits of living at The Reserve at Oak Ranch, our senior community in Southeast Austin, is the proximity to the city center and its many parks, museums, and events. We have listed some ideas of fun activities to enjoy with your grandkids next time they’re in town!
Visit Zilker Botanical Garden
The botanical garden is a great option to enjoy some family time. Get lost in the interconnected paths and enjoy the variety of roses, herbs, waterfalls and Koi-filled ponds. This garden is often referred as “the jewel in the heart of Austin”. Visit their website here to learn about their hours of operation and events.
Go for a swim!
Austin is hot, hot,hot during the summer – which makes it the perfect place to enjoy a refreshing soak. Whether you decide to go to Barton Springs Pool, a natural springs pool located on the grounds of Zilker Park in Austin or enjoy the pools available in your community, make swimming part of your itinerary this summer with your grandkids, we assure you they will love it!
Tour The State Capitol
It is never too early to teach your grandkids about Texas history and how lawmakers work. The Texas Capitol offers free tours throughout the week, visit their website for more details. Want to make it fun? Ask your grandkids trivia questions afterwards to see how much they learned – the winner gets ice cream!
Enjoy a class together
Taking a class together with your grandkids is an excellent opportunity to bond while learning a new skill! Take a painting class, learn about gardening techniques, practice some yoga or even take dancing class! If you live in a senior community, reach out to the community manager and ask for an event calendar.
We hope these ideas help you have a fun summer with you grandchildren. At The Reserve at Oak Ranch we offer a gated community, professional staff and excellent location. We have a full calendar of social events and our senior community is located only 15 minutes from Downtown, we make it easy to enjoy the good life!
