Empire Vista Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
With built-in neighborhood attractions, such as a park and museum, and ready access to a major freeway that travels downtown, the community of Empire Vista is a vibrant place to live. Homes in the northeast corner of the neighborhood look out over Thomas Jay Regional Park.
Empire Vista is located in zip code 85756. The Interstate 10 Freeway runs along the community’s western border, and the Saguaro National Forest lies to the east.
The Thomas Jay Regional Park, which sits just outside the neighborhood to the northeast is one of many good reasons to live in Empire Vista. This community park features two baseball/softball fields, a T-ball field, two lighted basketball courts, a community center, picnic areas, and two playgrounds. The site is also home to the Littletown Recreation Center, which features a wide variety of classes and programs for residents.
Those looking for an educational outing can travel just minutes to the east and visit the Pima Air and Space Museum. This facility features almost 300 aircrafts, which are located on over 80 acres in the 127 acre site. The museum, which opened in May 1976, is one of the country’s largest non-government-sponsored aerospace museums. Next door to the museum is the Davis-Monthan Air Force Base. This United States Airforce Base was established in 1925, and is still a key military aviation location.
Golfers appreciate traveling a short distance to the northeast to play a game at the Fred Enke Golf Course. Opened in 1983, this scenic course features large greens and stunning views of the Rincon Mountains and Saguaro National Forest.
