Santa Fe Park Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The Santa Fe Park residential area of Tucson, Arizona is 13 miles northwest of the city near the community of Casas Adobes. It is north of West Magee Road and includes properties on North Totavi Trail and West Chimayo Place. It has a rural desert setting with one-story stucco homes presented in earthy tones to enhance the saguaros and yuccas typical of the southwest landscape. Children attend the Mesa Verde Elementary School, Lawrence W. Cross Middle School, and Edge High School. Shopping is comfortable with the Fort Hills Mall close by. There are 90 stores, eight restaurants, and a Cineplex with 15 screens. Anchor stores include Aeropostale, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Old Navy. A Wal-Mart and Sam’s Club are also in the area.
Golf is just a mile away at the Tucson National Golf Course, which has hosted a PGA Tour and Southern Arizona open on its 18-hole traditional course. Its fairways boast breathtaking views of the Santa Catalina Mountains. The course combines desert vegetation with challenging bunkers. Golf pros are available for members who want help to improve their game. Practice areas and a well-stocked Pro Shop (that even has rentals) make this quite a popular club.
The Tohono Chul Park, just two miles from the Santa Fe Park residential cluster, is more than a botanical garden. It was established to educate the public about the cultural traditions and flora and fauna of the Sonora Desert, such as the enchanting Night Blooming Cereus plant. Activities and displays include a walking path, hands-on learning experiences for children, an art gallery, and a homeowner’s display with landscaping ideas. Evening concerts and weddings are held in the beautiful gardens. Special events are held year-round, such as the Bats Flying Aces program, organized tours, and school field trips are welcomed.
