The Pinellas County Veterans Council Military Honor Guard prepares the “missing man table” in honor of those remembered during the grand opening of The Plaza, a new community event area at The Palms of Largo Oct. 13.
LARGO – The Palms of Largo unveiled a new community event area on its 88-acre campus called The Plaza Oct. 13, inviting the community to celebrate with a morning ceremony, meal and day of family-friendly activities.
The Plaza is designed as a gathering place for residents, family, friends, veterans, employees and the Largo community. It is a continuation of The Goodman Group and The Palms of Largo’s mission to develop a community that provides stability for seniors and employees by providing life-enriching programs and services while giving back to the Largo area, said owner and developer John B. Goodman.
“We are excited about this gathering area for The Palms of Largo but also for the greater Largo community,” Goodman stated. “The Plaza will host a multitude of programs and activities that will contribute to the tapestry of the already vibrant and lively community and integrate programs with the Largo Community Center next door.”
The Plaza consists of a rotunda, covered activity ramadas, The Plaza Deli with courtyard dining, a veterans’ memorial, vine-shaded trellises, a ceremonial lawn, and a gazebo.
The Plaza, at 385 Alt. Keene Road, will host a full calendar of daily events such as educational and exercise classes, resident and community markets, interactive recreational and social events, business seminars, group meetings, and live music events.
It also can be rented for personal celebrations such as weddings, graduations and other occasions.
The Palms of Largo offers residential apartments, home health care, independent and assisted living, short-term rehabilitation, long-term care, respite stays, memory care, end of life care, pediatric care, experimental pre-school and day care and a holistic spa and fitness center. It was established in 1976.
