    From the outside this luxury retirement community looks like any other apartment complex in the area—nothing about it says "retirement." This makes this community ideal for active seniors. The community is gated, providing residents with a bit of extra peace of mind. Apartments are large, and feature electric fireplaces, a patio or balcony—and in-unit washers and dryers. Residents can grow vegetables in raised beds. While there is no hands-on care available, there are group outings, continental breakfast, on-site maintenance, and a 24 hour emergency call system. This is a pricy community, but safe and comfortable.

Description of Gibson Gardens

Gibson Gardens - Tacoma, WA - Exterior


Gibson Gardens - Tacoma, WA - LogoAs a comfortable and independent community for active adults, Gibson Gardens provides spacious accommodations and wonderful amenities to retirees in the greater Tacoma area. We encourage seniors age 55 and older to enjoy an independent lifestyle, choosing the amenities and services they want, when they want them.

Located on the site of the former Gibson Nursery, Gibson Gardens was started by the Gibson family in an effort to give back to the community who had made their father's flower business so successful for six decades. Fresh bouquets are still delivered to our community each morning to honor the home that flowers built.
