  • Residents, family, friends, town officials and staff gathered together to celebrate the grand opening of the newest jewel in the Town of Farmington’s crown.
    Farmington Gardens, a beautiful senior housing apartment complex located just off Route 332 at 6000 Mercier Boulevard in Farmington, officially opened its doors with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Thursday, Dec. 16, at 2 p.m.
    The facility features eighty-eight apartments, a celebrated community room, walking paths, and a peaceful setting offering garden plots to residents. 
    An all-star guest list shared words of appreciation and thanks with the 75 people in attendance. Those who spoke included President of Home Leasing Cathy Sperrick, Chief Operations Officer of Edgemere Development Stephanie Benson, Farmington Gardens Manager Sarah Werzinger,  President of the Farmington Chamber of Commerce Cal Cobb, Chief of Staff for Senator Nozzolio Joan Grela, and Farmington Director of Planning and Development Ron Brand. 
    “I was very excited to see how many people came, especially the residents,” said Werzinger. “For us that’s the most important thing. And I appreciated the people from the town who came out to support us.”
    Nelson Leenhouts, the owner of the Farmington Gardens who just days before had dressed as Santa Clause for the Gardens Christmas party, said a special thanks to the residents for making it such a great community.  Leenhouts then gathered residents and town officials and invited guests to cut the ribbon in unison and officially open this beautiful senior living community.
    “Afterward we had a reception with food and coffee,” said Werzinger, “and got to meet everyone and give tours to everyone who wanted them.”
