Mulberry PARC Review
7230 Acorn Avenue, Burnaby, British Columbia, V5E 4N9
This is a superb retirement community in the heart of Burnaby for independent seniors who want to feel rejuvenated and revitalized. PARC is the maker of numerous excellent retirement communities throughout the Greater Vancouver area, and Mulberry is a fine example of their work in a prime suburban location.
Interior amenities include a fireplace lounge, library and billiards room, along with a spa. There's an elegantly appointed main floor dining room, serving chef-prepared meals and desserts. You'll love the spacious patio on the outdoor terrace, ideal for summer visits with family, to play chess with the giant chess set, or to just sit out and bask in the sunshine. Suites are decorated in very tasteful colours and styles, with spectacular views of the city; included are spacious bathrooms with walk-in showers and other modern features ideal for seniors.
For all of the features onsite, it's the people that make this truly great. Mulberry broadcasts itself as "a welcoming community" and that really is a focus. The knitting group is just one example of a friendship circle (a "great group of ladies," says one member) within the larger community. Ideal for families from Burnaby and New Westminster, and for seniors from anywhere else who want to be closer to kids and grandkids in the Burnaby area, it's a spectacular retirement home experience. Mulberry PARC is focused on enhancing your life, improving your overall wellbeing, including (or perhaps especially) your social activity. Here, it's easy to pursue previous passions or try out new interests. Your life will improve at Mulberry PARC.

What residents say about Mulberry PARC
We keep very busy here. When people say they’re bored, it’s because they’re not doing anything. Here, there’s always something to do.
[Knitting-For-A-Cause, one weekly group] is a wonderful social time… [some members] would say to me they hadn’t knit in years and I decided to change that. It brings them out of their suites and out of their shells. Their disposition improves.
There’s lot to do here. I really appreciate the flexibility and freedom here because I’ve always been very busy in my life.
