Tres Santos Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The neighborhood of Tres Santos is nine miles northeast of downtown Tucson, Arizona. It hugs the edge of the Santa Catalina Natural Area, in the foothills of the Santa Catalina Mountains. Lovely earth-tone homes are enhanced by Sonoran Desert vegetation and an unrestricted view of the sun slipping behind the mountains. Experienced hikers will find many unmarked trails to explore right in their own backyard. The residential area is bounded on the south by North Canon Del Pajaro, east by North Rattlesnake Canyon Road, and west by North Thimble Pass.
Golfers have easy access to the 18-hole public course at Doroado Country Club, one-half mile down the road, and the private Ventana Canyon Golf and Racquet club, with its 11 lighted tennis courts, 18-hole course, professional support, and pro shop.
Children attend Canyon View or Van Horn Elementary, Magee Middle, and University High School. The Tucson Mall, 7.5 miles south of the neighborhood, is a shopper’s paradise, with over 200 stores and restaurants, including Sears, Dillard’s, Macy’s, JC Penny, Build-a-Bear, and Sephora. Also in the area are Costco, Wal-Mart, Trader Joe’s, and AJ’s Fine Foods.
Sports fun is found at Morris K. Udall Park, five miles south of the neighborhood. This 173-acre space has sports fields for organized sports, including soccer fields, and basketball and tennis courts. There is also a bocce court, horseshoe pits, sand volleyball courts, a walking path, and a playground and recreation center with exercise equipment. An outdoor amphitheater hosts free summer concerts and other community events. A fenced-in dog exercise area rounds out the amenities.
