Agro Farms Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Along the scenic East River Road in Tucson is the Agro Farms neighborhood. The sprawling multi-unit apartment complex Rio Vista covers the neighborhood, with the surrounding area rich with both traditional public schools and alternative learning centers. The Rio Vista is situated at 2000 East River Road and uses walls to secure the Agro Farms neighborhood’s boundaries on the eastern, southern, and western exposures, with the entrance open to East River Road at the north.
Just to the west, along East River Road from the Agro Farms neighborhood, is the historic Rillito Park and Racetrack, established in 1943 when Ruken Jenkins, a quarter-horse breeder, carved the racetrack out in his backyard. It holds the claim as the birthplace of official quarter-horse sport racing; several Kentucky Derby winners have raced the oval track since 1971. To enhance the accuracy of race results, the “photo finish” concept – a Rillito Racetrack contribution – adds to the excitement of the sport.
To the east of the Agro Farms neighborhood is the Hacienda del Sol office complex, as well as a modern plaza for medical specialists, conveniently located to the neighborhood for those environmentally conscious residents who prefer to walk or bike to work. Many local businesses along East River Road are also within walking or biking distance.
The Agro Farms neighborhood, situated just south of the Catalina Foothills (a popular hiking destination) and just north of the metro center of the city of Tucson, has the perfectly blended feel of modern city life and rural community living. The neighborhood is only a four-minute walk to the 103X Sun Tran bus line route, which opens up the city for adventure and exploration. The Catalina Foothills provide the backdrop to the north, painting a picturesque vision of southwestern life. The neighborhood of Agro Farms is pet-friendly.
