Moving to Rancho Sahuarita - what to expect

Moving to Rancho Sahuarita

If you're unfamiliar with Rancho Sahuarita, let us introduce you! "Rancho" - as the residents affectionately call it - is a top-selling master-planned community approximately 20 minutes south of Downtown Tucson.

Rancho Sahuarita is widely recognized as a family-friendly community. It is unique in Southern Arizona for offering the most highly amenitized lifestyle in the region. In the center of Rancho Sahuarita is a 15-acre lake park that is ideal for sailing, fishing, or enjoying a performance at the lake’s amphitheatre. There are 17 miles of paved trails that weave throughout the community that connect neighborhoods and schools. The numerous community parks offer a variety of features including a Safari Trail with life-sized bronze statues of African animals, Desert Interpretative and Butterfly Gardens, picnic tables, and ramadas that can be rented for birthday parties and other celebrations. At the centerpiece of the community is Club Rancho Sahuarita, a recreation center with the largest private splash park in Southern Arizona, a 6,000 sq. ft. fitness facility, a new Kids Club, and an Activities Lawn with a life size passenger train for weekend rides, a pedal car racetrack, a nine-hole miniature golf course, a shaded playground, and an event lawn for concerts and outdoor entertainment.

Club Rancho Sahuarita is also currently undergoing an exciting renovation. Opening in the Clubhouse in Summer 2015 is a one-of-a-kind culinary kitchen and flex space. Unique programs and events, like wine tastings, children’s baking classes, and social activities for adults, will be offered in the new space.
