Macleans Magazine ranked Langford as #1 – The Best Place to Live in BC and 18th in Canada. Come see why!
Cherish at Central Park is ideally located, right between a flat beautifully wooded residential area and a step away from the largest of Greater Victoria’s shopping malls and the City Centre Park Entertainment Zone. All within a few blocks there are grocery stores, medical and dental offices, pharmacies, Walmart, Canadian Tire, restaurants, bakery, Tim Horton’s, banks, YM/YWCA Aquatic Center, Conservatory of Music, public library and more. City Center Park Entertainment Zone is home to Rugby Canada, a bowling alley, outdoor fitness circuit and other entertainment venues – it’s a great place to take the grandkids. West Shore Town Centre Mall has a Cineplex Odeon six-screen theatre along with Winners, Dollarama, Starbucks, The Brick, Fairways Grocers, Bulk Barn, Original Joe’s, Romeo’s, White Spot, Noodle Box, Purdy’s, dry cleaner and more, right across the street. The Galloping Goose walking trail and Langford’s extensive trail system are a block away. Royal Colwood Golf Club is on the other side of the mall. Equally exciting is the new 160,000 square-foot Belmont Market retail center directly across the street, which has the largest Thrifty’s grocery on Vancouver Island. A life of total convenience – it is all here!
We are located at the corner of Jacklin and Jenkins Roads in downtown Langford, BC’s fastest-growing community and the best place to live in BC, according to Macleans Magazine. It is a truly fantastic location – and especially great for senior living – just steps away from everything and flat for easy walking. The property has streets on three sides, Jacklin and Jenkins for good people watching and Avrill for quiet easy vehicle access. The building was designed to ensure that every suite gets sunshine. The building is “U” shaped with a south-facing inner courtyard.
Cherish at Central Park is a five-minute walk with the grandchildren to the new City Central Park, Glen Lake and Langford Lake fishing pier. Close by Langford Lanes Bowling Alley, Royal Roads University and West Shore Recreation Center offer a variety of educational and recreational programs for the young at heart. There are numerous golf courses, biking and walking trails, lakes for swimming, boating and fishing – all right here!

THE HEALING PLACE SPA
While still currently closed, The Healing Place will re-open soon as part of winding down pandemic protocols.
They say that good things come in small packages. We think so too. The Healing Place should not be judged by its size. This spa brings holistic natural wellness to its clients by using only what we believe to be the most effective products and treatments. Our essential oils are medical grade from DoTerra. Each oil is in its purest form from the truest traditional source. To complement this and be true to Cherish’s value of engaging technology for the betterment of ageing, we bring Comfort Zone skincare products in from Italy. Comfort Zone brings science to nature achieving superior results.
Claudia and Roberto, both very experienced hairstylists offering cuts, colours and perms at affordable prices.
Cherish at Central Park houses Independent Living rental suites, condominiums and the separately owned and unaffiliated Redeemer Lutheran Church of Victoria. The building has frontage and access on three roads; Jacklin, Jenkins and Avrill Roads. The life, fire and safety systems are state of the art with intelligent particulate based smoke detectors, heat-sensing sprinkler systems throughout every closet and room in the building, a public address system available to the First Responders so that they may talk to everyone in the building at once and many other upgrades not required by the Fire Code. There are seven floors which include secure underground parking for cars, scooters and bicycles. There are three elevators in the building, one of which is powered by a generator to compensate for power outages. There are six common laundry rooms for your personal laundry (although we can do that too if you would like) five of which have ironing facilities, an assisted bathing tub, jacuzzi tub, washrooms adjacent to every amenity and common space. The sloped roof is asphalt shingle and the exterior is cementitious siding.

The port cochere at the entryway is well lit and will keep you dry when being dropped off all year long. There is a conveniently located bench in the entry vestibule.

Our courtyard is a wonderful place for garden parties, with raised garden beds, a water feature and a professionally designed 6 hole putting green.

We LOVE gardens and flowers. In our first building, we earned a Communities in Bloom award for our hanging baskets and we plan to make our gardens spectacular with the help of our Grow Getters. If you have an interest in gardening, come join the Grow Getters to get our new community garden and greenhouse off the ground.
Our garden will have an ever-changing array of flowers including real fruit-producing trees. We will continue to highlight some of the types of greenery. There are six pink flowering dogwoods, three on Jacklin Road and three on Jenkins Road (at the Jacklin/Jenkins corner). It will be a few years before they look like this, but they are spectacular at any size.
Gardeners never grow old, they just spade away!
We help people cherish living. Come by for lunch and a tour. Call Micky at 250-478-4431.
