Interspersed between and around the Stevens Square condominiums will be new and historic green spaces…more community gathering and activity space for Stevens Square homeowners retiring to Maine.
A dog park, community gardens, the Great Lawn, and a historic reflection garden are all part of the master plan.
The 30-acre Mayor Baxter Woods, “forever kept in its natural wild state and as a sanctuary for birds,” is directly connected to Stevens Square. It is predominantly forested by old stands of red oak, white oak, white pine, hemlock and other species between 180-200 years in age…right in the heart of the city!
It’s your perfect opportunity to commune with nature and use the trail system right out your door. And it’s dog friendly!
While Stevens Square homeowners will live in modern condominium homes, they have access to a spectacular and historic former chapel as space for resident organized activities and gatherings.
The gathering space is located within the impeccably restored Motherhouse, the heart of Deering Center since 1908. It adds a sense of history and vintage architecture to contemporary 55+ living and retiring to Maine.
The Stevens Square Community Center brings people together to be social, active, healthy, and productive. Combining grand open spaces, private comfortable nooks, and the innovative repurposing of a beloved building, the Community Center connects the Stevens Square campus community, Deering Center, and the city of Portland through exercise, wellness, food, entertainment, the arts, business, and new friends.
