It isn’t just Earth Day we’ll celebrate April 22, 2021! Spring has sprung at Collingwood Apartment Homes in Alpharetta, Georgia, and with it the chance to get outside and play!
Group games are such a fun way to spend time with friends and get to know fellow outdoor enthusiasts in our upscale Atlanta-area apartment community. Maybe you want to organize some friendly cornhole competitions, or do something a little more casual, like spend time throwing horseshoes while you’re at one of our grilling stations. Options abound!
We asked the Collingwood Apartment Homes Idea Specialists™ what their go-tos are on the gaming front. Along with cornhole and horseshoes, they are fans of some other classics—bocce ball and ladder toss. Any of those pair well with a cold craft beer or glass of fresh of lemonade, soft or hard—or you can try your hand at some of this season’s popular cocktails like a Cherry Blossom or Griffith Park Swizzle. Visit Royal Liquor Store on State Bridge Road to get just what you need—or order online and have it delivered.
Think about taking some indoor clubhouse favorites outside. There’s a giant version of almost everything these days, from yard Yahtzee and ginormous Jenga to checkers and tic-tac-toe on a blanket.
Once it gets just a _little_ bit warmer, you may want to start socializing on the sundeck. When things heat up, you can take your volleyball game into Colling Apartment Homes’ sparkling pool. Or, play the water-based version of cornhole.
Of course we can’t leave our furry friends out of the gaming fun; one of the reasons our residents recommend us to friends is because we’re such an animal-friendly community. Doggie Frisbee is fun for everyone to watch, and gets you and your good boy or girl some great exercise! Our pet park is the perfect place for that, and Unexpected Pooch in Town Square is the perfect place to buy a West Paw Zisc, which is both puncture-resistant and gentle on your pet’s mouth.
If sitting inside the clubhouse out of the sun is more your speed, board games are the way to bring people around the table. Again, our Collingwood Apartment Homes Idea Specialists™ are fans of the classics: Scrabble, Monopoly, and chess (“The Queen’s Gambit,” anyone?). For multi-player fun that doesn’t last as long, they suggest Articulate!, a fast-paced team game for up to 20 players. The concept is that taking turns, each member of a team has only 30 seconds to describe as many words from a category as they can. The catch? No saying what the word rhymes with or sounds like.
Or, plan an outing to Top Golf on Westside Parkway.
