Swans Nest Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Swans Nest is a tiny neighborhood in the Catalina Foothills of Tucson, Arizona. The community is lightly populated with sparse native desert vegetation. The Santa Catalina Mountains to the north provide a tranquil setting and peace in this section of town. Residents have the best of both worlds: natural surroundings and the many amenities of the city of Tucson.
With the Santa Catalina Mountains to the north, recreation is a big part of local life. Visitors travel from around the region to popular destinations like the George Mehl Foothills District Park. This park offers several baseball diamonds and multi-purpose fields that are used heavily by youth leagues for baseball, softball, football, and soccer. On the south side of the park is a large paved trail that is perfect for walkers, runners, and cyclists who need a solid paved area to exercise.
For those who prefer greater adventure, the Santa Catalina Mountains provide many areas for camping, hiking, and cycling. There are also a number of picnic areas and scenic outlooks where nature lovers can get a glimpse of the city of Tucson and enjoy a snack without hiking out into the wilderness.
The Dusenberry River Branch Library is located east of Swans Nest off of Craycroft Road and East River Road. This library provides thousands of books for research and pleasure. It also has a number of computers with free Internet access that students can use for their projects and that help residents connect to the rest of the world.
