Lexington, Kentucky (LEX 18) — Most of us spend more time outside to stay healthy and safe during a pandemic.
The Ashland Terrace Retirement Community is backed by students from the University of Kentucky to allow additional outdoor space.
“It’s just because there’s an extraordinary group of women here. Some people are painting, reading, and doing all sorts of activities,” says Ruth, who has lived there for five months.・ Stewart said.
Stewart spent Thursday afternoon listening to British landscaping students announcing their plans for the space.
British instructor Jordan Femister said:
This area needs reconstruction. Students are planning because of the limited space options for outside families.
“Women said they wanted a place to sit down, eat, and go to the front porch. There aren’t many tables to support that activity,” Femister said.
Florence Mayer is familiar with Ashland Terrace. She has been around the community there for 15 years and now lives there. She is optimistic about what’s to come.
“Many of the people here are pedestrians, so there’s an accessible area where people can mix and relax,” says Stewart.
