Ventana Creek Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Ventana Creek is a small residential neighborhood in the Catalina Foothills, roughly 12 miles northeast of downtown Tucson, Arizona. The community consists of fewer than a dozen homes on North Moccasin Trail. Compared to some of the neighboring communities, the homes in Ventana Creek are quite spread out on spacious lots with rather heavy vegetation for shade from the Tucson sun. Many of the homes here also have their own swimming pools to further beat the Arizona heat. Ventana Creek is situated in the 85750 zip code area, within Pima County.
Nestled in the foothills area, Ventana Creek residents enjoy easy access to the surrounding natural areas, as well as beautiful views of the Santa Catalina Mountains. Some of the natural attractions to the north and east include the Santa Catalina Natural Area, General Hitchcock Picnic Area, Mt. Lemmon, and Butterfly Peak Natural Area. However, residents of the Catalina Foothills also enjoy a variety of commercial offerings and scenic views of the nearby city as well. Downtown Tucson is just a 30-minute drive to the southwest.
Ventana Creek residents also enjoy close proximity to several area golf clubs. Within five miles to the south is the Tucson Country Club; closer to home, to the northwest, is the Skyline Country Club. The latter offers a beautiful 18-hole course that is challenging, yet highly playable for a variety of skill levels. The three-story clubhouse at Skyline also offers fitness facilities, formal and informal dining options, and tennis courts.
The Tucson Medical Center and adjacent Palo Verde Hospital and Healthsouth Rehab Institute of Tucson are situated a few miles to the southwest, near the Tucson Country Club. This area medical center provides convenient health care options for Ventana Creek residents, as well as employment opportunities for the area.
Schools near Ventana Creek include the Ventana Vista Elementary School on North Kolb Road.
