Skyranch Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The Skyranch neighborhood in Marana, Arizona, zip code 85658, sits in a hilly area and is not always visible at night. With the low-level lighting required by the county and the homes’ exteriors that match the surrounding desert, the dark night skies accentuate the millions of stars that shine above.
This community, set in a natural preserve, is surrounded by an area that has grown to meet the needs of the residents. Not only is there abundant shopping and dining, recreational activities are available for every age. Marana and Oro Valley have created bike trails throughout the area and they can take residents to the Oro Valley Marketplace. The Marketplace is the home of the Wal-Mart Super Center and many choices for shopping and dining.
This neighborhood is located on Tangerine Road, with the western border of North Camino De Oeste. The eastern border is North Thornydale Road and the southern boundary is West Camino Del Norte.
Children attend Ironwood Elementary, Tortolita Middle School, and Mountain View High School. There are many parks in the area and four golf courses to choose from. One of the most popular parks is the James D. Kriegh Park with the Olympic-sized pool that is heated year-round. This 20-acre park has grills in the sheltered picnic areas and the sport fields and courts are lighted for nighttime play. The shaded playground is great for the kids. There is an off-leash dog park for the canine family members to run and play.
The Skyranch neighborhood has spectacular views of the Catalina, Tortolita, and Tucson mountains. As close as it is to Tucson, the feel of this neighborhood is still more like country than city.
