“Tennis has allowed me to compete, meet interesting people, and stay in shape,” says Jim.

Until about a year and a half ago, Scotty Hart was living in a condo in Boston.

With over 1,100 residents and more moving in every week, Highland Springs, an Erickson Living-managed community, is one of North Dallas’ hottest addresses for active senior living.

Several Greenspring staff members showed off their various cultures at last year’s diversity expo, standing here in front of a rainbow balloon arch.
