Residents at Cotton Wood Point retirement apartments are helping to beautify the grounds by planting their own community garden. The garden sits behind the complex, with a view of the lake.

Residents have taken ownership of specific plots in the garden, and planted their own foliage. Large planters contain beautiful, bright flowers and large greens. There's a vegetable garden as well.

The community garden is just one way Cotton Wood Point keeps its residents active. The retirement community also holds exercise sessions, leads senior yoga and has a billiards room.

Cotton Wood Point serves Augusta and the Wichita surrounding areas. To find out more about the community, visit
