A rough and rugged landscape consisting of the Tortolita Mountains, the Sonoran Desert, national forests, and several Indian reservations surround the town of Marana, Arizona. Made for outdoor adventures, Marana residents can go hiking, mountain climbing, camping, and horseback riding. And, since it is just 20 miles north of Tucson on I-10, it is a convenient location, as well.
Marana’s five parks offer ball fields, tennis courts, playgrounds, a skate park, and a horseshoe pit. Ora Mae Harn Park has a pool, and San Lucas Community Park has a dog park. Marana Heritage River Park features a farmer’s market and the Community Food Bank Farm. It also has access to two major trails. The Juan Bautista de Anza National Historic Trail is a 1,200-mile trail that will take hikers all the way to San Francisco, California.
Don’t miss the lovely Arthur Pack Regional Park. It features hiking, sports fields, and an amazing desert landscape. Pack a picnic lunch and enjoy the ramadas located throughout the park. The Arthur Pack Desert Golf Course is a highlight of the area. This 18-hole course features beautiful desert views.
Ironwood Forest National Monument contains three historic areas and breathtaking views. This exquisite desert showcase can be in your backyard when you rent in Marana.
