Carson Corner Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
As a partly residential neighborhood and partly thriving hub for distinct businesses that dot the area, Carson Corner is a unique neighborhood north of Tucson.
Carson Corner is bordered to the north by E. Golf Links Road and to the south by E. Escalante Road. S. Pantano Road marks the easternmost street of the neighborhood, while its boundary is set in the west by S. Kolb Road. The Desert Square Shopping Center lies on its most northwestern border, marking a popular hangout for younger residents of the neighborhood.
Carson Corner itself is sandwiched—along with several local neighborhoods—between the massive Saguaro National Park and Tucson Mountain Park. Outdoor enthusiasts have closer options as well. If walking through the beautifully manicured streets of Carson Corner is not cutting it, nearby parks include the Chuck Ford Lakeside Park, just east of Carson Corner. It’s where residents can go to canoe, hike, and play or watch sports. Escalante Park and Vista Del Prado Park are just to the west of Carson Corner.
Houses in Carson Corner range from small, singe-family units to sprawling homes on many acres. Almost all the restaurants in Carson Corner are placed at its northern border, along Golf Links Road. Residents often dine at Oishi Sushi, Losbetos Mexican Restaurant, and Gold China.
The popular business Media Watch is established in Carson Corner near the corner of S. Chesin Drive and E. Nicaragua Drive. It serves the neighborhood and outlying areas with its mission of preserving and acquiring broadcast radio and television news. It serves as a digital media library and a museum.
Carson Corner is served by the Tucson Unified School District 1. Reynolds Elementary School, Lil Bear Preschool, and Carson Middle School are located inside the neighborhood. Santa Rita High School is just beyond the neighborhood’s borders.
