    WOODLAND HEIGHTS_100 PX HIGH

     

    Since Woodland Heights's is nestled in a tranquil setting of a secluded forest of mature oaks and evergreens, you'd never guess how close it is to Interstate 630 and other major attractions of the Greater Little Rock metropolitan area. But if it’s fantastic dining, cultural, and social opportunities you’re after, you don’t have to travel far.

     

    Right on campus, you’ll enjoy delicious restaurant menus prepared by your very own executive chef. Connect with your neighbors during our many daily activities or at our popular “Happy Hour” in the evening. Aspire to feel your personal best with the benefit of our on site fitness center, heated indoor saltwater swimming pool and whirlpool. And rest assured you’re being taken care of by our dedicated staff with more than 27 years experience in the senior living industry.

     

    More than just maintenance-free, the active Woodland Heights lifestyle offers a whole new perspective on retirement living.
