Catalina Madre Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Wide open spaces and thoughts of desert landscaping provide a mental picture of the Catalina Madre housing development. Catalina Madre is a northeastern subdivision of Tucson, Arizona. Many of the lots in the neighborhood cover one or more acres and have desert fauna, mature trees, and fruit trees.
The Santa Catalina Mountains offer residents a breathtaking view and outdoor adventure that is available year-round. Sabino Canyon offers narrated tours; Bear Canyon has a two hour non-narrated tour. Nestled in the mountains is the ski resort, Mount Lemmon. Skiing in southern Arizona is made possible by the approximately 180 inches of snow it receives each year. Mount Lemmon Observatory, an astronomical observatory, is located on Mount Lemmon peak. The mountains also offer a cool respite during the heat of the summer. Campers and hikers will enjoy the campgrounds and trails. The auto road allows non-hikers to enjoy the scenic area.
Spelunkers, hikers, bikers, and campers will want to spend time in the Coronado National Forest. The forest also has recreational possibilities with its lakes, off-road vehicles trails, and rock-climbing possibilities. Catalina Madre residents can go for the day and enjoy a wonderful picnic or use the forest as their weekend get-away and rent a cabin.
The Catalina Madre area is educated through the Tanque Verde School District. Elementary students attend nearby Agua Caliente Elementary School. Middle school students are sent to Verde Middle School. High school students enjoy an excellent education at Tanque Verde High School, a school developed by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
Catalina Madre offers the best of desert and city living with nature and shopping both close at hand.
