Developer Stanley Williamson named this historic district after the seacoast town of San Clemente in California. This historic district was crafted to mimic an upscale Spanish Colonial Revival community. Its winding crescent streets, Spanish Eclectic style homes, along with its surrounding desert landscape, gives San Clemente residents a strong sense of identity. This earrned San Clemente a place on the National Register and as a National Historic District in February 2005.
Twice a year, the San Clemente community gathers for its bi-annual Spring and Fall picnic. During this event, the smell of grilled hamburgers fills the air, children gather to play, and residents get to talk about the latest community happenings.
Several conveniently located amenities await San Clemente residents and visitors. Many choose to walk their dogs or go out for a jog or hike in beautiful Reid Park. Children and adults may also enjoy the Reid Park Zoo, a 17 acre zoo housing birds, prairie dogs, farm animals, and a few squirrel monkeys. This popular zoo attracts an average of nearly 500,000 visitors annually and is accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums.
Those enamored with sports instead can take advantage of two eighteen-hole golf courses (Randolph and Dell’ Urich), nearby baseball and soccer fields, over twenty tennis courts, and a gymnasium at the adjoining Randolph Park Recreation Center.
The San Clemente neighborhood was built in the 1920s and really flourished in the 40s and 50s once the Depression era subsided. Today, its residents take great pride for living in this historic midtown oasis which also fosters great community spirit. San Clemente is home to about 1,027 people, which makes about 0.2 percent of Tucson’s population.
