Swans near waterfall, at entrance to VBAThe Village by the Arboretum (VBA) is a development of 492 single-family detached and town homes, as well as mid-rise condominiums, built on a 112-acre site leased by Reid's Heritage Homes from the University of Guelph. Located adjacent to the University's 500-acre Arboretum, the VBA offers an active adult lifestyle within the Guelph city limits and near the cultural offerings of a large university and a vibrant urban community. There is a large Recreation Centre with an indoor pool, auditorium and many activity rooms.

A Residents' Association (VBARA), formed in 1994, is responsible for representing the general interests of the Village residents to the landlord, the University of Guelph, governments and other organizations. The VBARA's function is social and advisory in nature. Several committees have been established, including a Support Group, a Membership Committee and a Social Committee which organizes monthly coffee hours, card parties, luncheons and day trips to nearby attractions. A monthly newsletter, Tree Talk, is published.
