WOODSTOCK, Ga. — What you see on the outside at Camellia Place will be just as important as what's on the inside when the assisted living residential center opens in March.
Famed UGA Coach and Master Gardner Vince Dooley was on hand when landscape architect Steve Sanchez, principal at HGOR, unveiled his plans last week.
Camellia Gardens will connect residents to a two-acre park, outdoor living space that includes courtyards and large porches, nearly two miles of walking paths and more than 100 varieties of ornamental plants and blooms to enjoy year-round.
"While Coach Dooley and Barbara won't need our assisted living or memory care services any time soon, his response to our vision was exciting," said Lauren Clifton, one of the founding partners and owners, along with Denise Swords.
Vince Dooley has a flower named for him. It's called the Vince Dooley Camellia.
Camellia Place will include memory care. It is currently under construction at 294 Rope Mill Road.
