As much as you’ll love your new luxury apartment, you may find yourself spending time being active in the community. The large lounge, family room and dining room with an outdoor terrace provide ample space to socialize and meet new friends.

Something truly special about Tennyson is our on-site fitness center. The warm water therapy pool has an underwater treadmill, making it truly unique – and only one of four of its kind in Wisconsin!  At the Health & Wellness Center, you will find workout equipment and daily exercise classes for all skill levels. Even better, you will have instruction and guidance from professional therapists.  As a resident at Tennyson, you will have access to the Health & Wellness Center.
