Presidio Villas Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Located on the southwest side of Tucson, the neighborhood of Presidio Villas is set amidst a rapidly growing section of the city. With large plots of land readily available for new development, this area appeals to first-time home owners, young families, snow birds who make Tucson their winter home, and those purchasing housing for investment purposes.
Single-family homes and condominiums dominate the area, and are governed by a neighborhood association. Residents of Presidio Villas enjoy a community Olympic-sized pool (available for private rental). The association oversees landscaping and improvements, safety, and other neighborhood concerns. There is an active Neighborhood Watch program.
In addition to the community resources, many Presidio Villa neighborhood residents enjoy spending time at nearby Mission Ridge Park. The park offers a baseball diamond, lighted basketball courts, a playground, and a picnic area, including water and grills.
Tucson residents generally enjoy a wide range of recreational activities, from day hiking in nearby foothills to world-class golf at any of the more than 30 courses in the area. Horseback riding, mountain biking, and swimming are all popular recreational pursuits.
One popular family attraction in the area is the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum. Combining a full zoo, natural history museum, and botanical gardens, the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum is designed to create awareness of the area’s environment and ecosystems. The museum is also close to the Saguaro National Park, another natural area rich in desert life and easily reached by car. Also fun for families is a visit to the Old Tucson Studios, which combines a movie set and theme park.
Educationally, Presidio Villas residents are served by Miller Elementary School, Hohokam Middle School, and Cholla High School. Advanced studies can be done at the University of Arizona, which offers more than 300 areas of study.
