Parks, Trails & Sahuarita Lake
Pocket Parks and Bark Parks
With two large neighborhood parks, nine beautifully kept “pocket” parks and 17 miles of pedestrian trails for safe walking and cycling, it’s easy to see why life in Rancho Sahuarita is full of exploration.
Our parks include pools, green space, play equipment, and picnic areas for our residents to enjoy and we also have a special Bark Park for fluffy friends.
A segment of the Juan Bautista de Anza National Historic Trail, as designated by the National Parks Service.
This trail winds through the Rancho Sahuarita community, connecting pocket parks and other trails.
Our neighborhood parks, Parque Del Rio and Parque Del Presidio, are each complete with pools, spas, playgrounds and sport courts. The Parque Del Rio is also home to the two newest amenities in Rancho Sahuarita – the Flamingo Splash Pad and Armed Forces Tribute.
The Armed Forces Tribute is dedicated to each branch of the Armed Forces: the Army, the Navy, the Air Force, the Marines and the Coast Guard. The new tribute presents the community’s residents the chance to honor both veterans and active duty service members. Special events have been held at the Tribute, including Coffee for Warriors and Memorial Day Remembrance ceremonies.
Sahuarita Lake & Sahuarita Lake Park
Sahuarita lake is a public, fishing-friendly lake located in the center of Rancho Sahuarita, right next to Club Rancho Sahuarita.
The lake, the only of its kind in the region, is encircled by a 15-acre park with trails, green space, and an open-air amphitheater.
Sahuarita Lake is the setting for many of Rancho Sahuarita’s events, as well as many events that are open to the rest of the Sahuarita community. Over the years, Sahuarita Lake has hosted a triathlon, boating competition, fishing festival, and canoe days.
On any given day, Sahuarita Lake is surrounded by anglers of all ages, people taking walks, and others going for brisk jogs around the water’s edge.
We encourage you to live a life of exploration in Rancho Sahuarita, so our parks and trails are easily accessible through each neighborhood in the community.
