Canoa Ranch is one of the many age-restricted communities in the Green Valley Recreation collection.

Providing access to the amenities in over a dozen communities, Green Valley Recreation (GVR) helps active adults get the most from their retirement years. By choosing a home in a GVR community, homebuyers have access to an exciting line-up of recreations unparalleled to those in a single development.

Green Valley Recreation is a conglomerate of age-restricted communities in Southern Arizona. As in other active adult communities, each development is open to residents aged 55 or better. Each community has its own series of homes as well as amenities, such as clubhouses, golf courses and outdoor recreations. However, residents are also allowed to share access to all of the GVR community amenities.

Amenities throughout Green Valley include 13 recreation centers, 8 championship golf courses, 13 swimming pools and a variety of sports courts for activities such as tennis, pickleball, bocce ball, basketball, and shuffleboard. Each clubhouse boasts its own special features, though residents will find many popular amenities such as fitness centers, hobby and game rooms, arts and crafts studios, and multipurpose social areas.

With over a dozen communities linked through the GVR program, active adult homebuyers are sure to find one which meets their needs. There are large communities with over 1,000 residences as well as more intimate neighborhoods with barely 200 homes. Some communities are new and still developing, while others are well established. Homebuyers who want a large, resort-style community may find their dream home in a development like Canoa Ranch.

As the newest development in Green Valley, Canoa Ranch has plans for 2,000 single-family homes, which are currently available on both a resale or new construction basis. The 7,013-yard Canoa Ranch Golf Club winds throughout the community offering challenging play for golfers of all skill levels and scenic views for neighborhood homes.

Legends at Santa Rita Springs is perfectly located near the heart of the Green Valley Recreation amenities.

Las Campanas is another good choice for homebuyers who want new construction or more recently built resale homes. This community opened in 1996 and has plans to one day contain just over 1,000 single-family and attached homes. In 2008, the Las Campanas clubhouse was expanded to provide 70,000 square feet of social and recreational amenities.

Active adults who prefer more tranquil, intimate neighborhoods will have no trouble finding desirable homes in some of Green Valley’s well-established communities. With between 200 and 300 homes, Legends at Santa Rita Springs and Sunrise Pointe each offer charming homes and beautifully landscaped grounds. Opened in 2007, Traditions at Desert Creek offers just 188 single-family homes on the west side of Green Valley, where residents can enjoy spectacular views of the distant Santa Rita Mountains.

With amenities spread across over a dozen communities and a diverse selection of beautiful homes, Green Valley Recreation may be the ideal retirement destination for many active adults. For more information on this community click here: Green Valley Recreation - Green Valley, AZ
