Mountain View Terrace Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Mountain View Terrace is aptly named. Looking in any direction finds a different mountain to view. To the east is the Santa Catalina Mountains and State Park. Heading north leads to the Tortolita Mountain Park, a local favorite for hikers, backpackers, and horseback riders. In the southwest is Tucson Mountain Park and the Old Tucson Studios.
Hollywood has used this bit of Arizona landscape in more than 300 movies, television shows, and commercials. The first was a western in 1940, entitled “Arizona.”
The neighborhood is small and shaped like a backward “L.” The bottom part of that “L’ is West Linda Vista Boulevard. Most of the homes were built between 1970 and 1994 and are single-family houses. The homes are large and take up most of the moderately sized lots. Many have swimming pools and most have palm trees in the front or back yards, or both.
North Vendone Avenue and North Gyor Place lead into Mountain View Terrace from West Linda Vista Boulevard. The lack of through traffic makes this a quiet, pedestrian-friendly area, even though it can get quite hot for walking about in the middle of the day during the warmest months.
On the other side of West Linda Vista Boulevard are the Arthur Pack Regional Park and its Desert Golf Course. The course is on the northern end, across from Mountain View Terrace. The southern end of the park is home to baseball and softball fields, batting cages, picnic areas, and playgrounds. Hiking trails wind throughout the park.
Degrazia Elementary and Mountain View High are both situated to the south. The closest churches are the Church of Jesus Christ of LDS and Mountain View Baptist. Outside of a few Subway and Dairy Queen eateries, most of the shops and restaurants are to the south, as is the University of Arizona.
