Saguaro Vista Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
With the Santa Catalina Mountain range as backdrop, the contemporary ranch homes of Saguaro Vista have an upscale feel, yet it is the kind of neighborhood where children ride bikes and neighbors meet to chat on the sidewalks. Saguaro Vista lies north of West Hardy Road and is accessed by North Bottlebrush Lane. It is in zip code 85742.
Neighborhood conveniences are clustered around the intersection of North Thornydale Road and West Linda Vista Boulevard, about a mile northwest of Saguaro Vista. There is a large grocery store here and several restaurants. Mountain View High School and Arthur Pack Regional Park are here as well.
Arthur Pack Regional Park is the site of many youth sports activities and the home of Crooked Tree Golf Course, a public course. Other recreational areas close by include the Oro Valley Municipal Pool, about five miles east at the foothills of the Santa Catalina Mountains. But the mountains themselves provide plenty of recreational opportunities, in either the state park or Saguaro National Park.
Saguaro Vista residents have great options when it comes to shopping. Whether one is looking for small galleries specializing in southwest arts and crafts, fresh produce at the farmers market, locally produced wine, or quality antiques, all are within a short drive. The north part of Tucson has new and upscale malls, such as La Encantada and Foothills Mall. A more traditional mall, Tucson Mall, has major retailers and is located about 10 miles south.
Tucson’s major educational institutions and entertainment areas are a short drive south. The vast campus of the University of Arizona, serving more than 35,000 students, brings excitement to town. For entertainment, the historic Rialto Theater and the Tucson Convention Center offer diverse programs, from flamenco to jazz to Broadway, and most everything in between.
