Mariposa Gardens Community & Retirement Living

Welcome to Mariposa Gardens Community & Retirement Living

Surrounded by tall, tree-peppered hills, Mariposa Gardens Community & Retirement Living offers Independent Living, Assisted Living, and Long-Term Care options. Situated in the picturesque town of Osoyoos on Highway 97 in the south Okanagan region of British Columbia, our warm, vibrant community of 145 people is close to Osoyoos Lake, restaurants, shops, and hotels as well as Haynes Point Provincial Park. Outdoor courtyards and relaxing indoor spaces are perfect for visits from family and friends. Visit the beauty salon/barber shop and enjoy daily recreational and music programs. We also offer a range of respite services including short stay and adult day programs. 


You are at the centre of everything we do.

From the moment you move in with us, we surround you with the care and support you need. We call this our Circle approach to living – where you are at the centre of everything we do.

Whether it’s settling into your new home; savouring delicious meals;  enjoying  stimulating  activities, or socializing with your neighbours, family, and friends, Circle delivers    a person-centred experience for every member of our community. 

Our Circle approach is guided by our Purpose to cultivate happiness in daily life, and our programs and services reflect this. Our skilled and compassionate team is ready to help you settle into your new home where, before long, you and your loved ones will be a welcome part of  a caring community full of friendly, familiar faces.
