A word from our residents
Meet Your Neighbor
I lived in Piedmont, CA most of my life and the transition to Merrill Gardens at Rockridge was much easier than I expected. My daughter discovered Merrill Gardens and brought me in for a tour – I felt the warmth of this community as soon as I walked in. I was excited that I could bring my dog, Coco to move in too!
I enjoy the bright spaces, food and the new friends I have made here! At the same time, I got to stay in the area I spent most of my life and be close to my daughter and a few of my grandchildren.
