This is the fourth in a series of 10 posts highlighting Rancho Sahuarita and the amenities that make it a great place for families. Look for other posts to come in the next few months!
Just a short walk, bike, or drive down the road from the Rancho Sahuarita Clubhouse lies one of the amenities that many consider to be one of the most unique to Rancho Sahuarita; the Safari Trail. Located along Rancho Sahuarita Blvd., this linear park is directly adjacent to one of the two satellite amenities in the community.
The Safari Park features green areas and walking and biking paths, in addition to life size bronze statues of African animals. The statues each feature a plaque with a description of the animal and details about its species, along with fun facts as takeaways for families.
The Park provides a great venue for families to pass the time exploring and enjoying the statues. Many families can be seen using the space for photo opps too – with laughing little ones posing for portraits atop the mother turtle and other animals. Events have also been held at the park and trail too – like this past summer’s Safari Movie Night; which gave families the opportunity to learn about the animals from a representative from Tucson’s Reid Park Zoo. Local schools like Anza Trail also take students to the park for educational outings.
Be sure to point the park and trail out to your clients next time on your way to the Clubhouse, and take them for a visit to explore it further if you have time. It’s a hit with the kiddos and great for family fun!
***Located directly south of the Safari Trail and Safari Trail Park is the Parque del Rio. This park, combined with the Parque Del Presidio in the northern region of the community, make up the “Satellite Amenities” in Rancho Sahuarita. Located in the neighborhoods of the community, these satellite amenities help bring a piece of the lifestyle based at the Rancho Sahuarita Clubhouse closer to home.
