Sabino Creek Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Before one reaches the illustrious Sabino Canyon, the community of Sabino Creek greets its travelers. Sabino Creek is in Tucson’s northeastern side off of River and Sabino Canyon Road, named after the creek that runs through that area.
Sabino Creek is a silent portal entry to Sabino Canyon and a sister companion to Ventana Canyon. It is a flat, open landscape that is often a point of crossing for the El Tour de Tucson cycling races.
Sabino Creek is a highly sought-out location where one is close to the splendor of the foothills but can easily commute to the more marketed places of town, such as the popular and thriving Park Mall and Madera Village shopping center. There are many wonderful restaurants to choose from in the Tanque Verde area.
In the community of Sabino Creek, you can find homes constructed by builder KE&G, Canoa Homes, and AF Sterling. These moderate to large homes were built in 1998 and are of Mediterranean or Santa Fe style, and are about 2000-3000 square feet of luxury space. One typically notices the white stucco contrasted against the warm, brick-red tile roofs.
People can enjoy hikes and trails in the Mt. Lemmon part of the Coronado National Forest that gives wonderful views of Pusch Ridge. The trails are about 5.8 miles long and have about an 8,000-foot elevation. Mt. Lemmon is also a great skiing destination during the winter months as it receives about 180 inches of snow annually.
Sabino Canyon, adjacent to Sabino Creek, was once part of Mexico, and was then part of the Gadsden Purchase in 1854, and is in the Santa Catalina Mountain range formed about 12 million years. Its history also includes being the settlement for the early Hohokam Indians. Now people flock to Sabino Canyon for picnics, hikes, and its vast natural scenery.
