Updates to GrandeVille’s Main Courtyard
We are excited about the current project underway to update the main courtyard in GrandeVille. The maintenance department has been hard at work laying down stone, planting and putting up wood railing accents along the walkways. Below you can see a few pictures of the current progress.
We invite you to take a walk through the courtyard on your next visit and enjoy these beautiful updates!
Thank you to our Maintenance Department

If you see one our maintenance employees during your next visit to GV – take a minute to express your appreciation for all their hard work and dedication.
A BIG THANK YOU TO – Miguel, Eduardo, Mike and Luis!!
