The Vineyard Outdoor Amenities

Area & Outdoor Recreation
Residents at The Vineyard can also enjoy Redding’s natural beauty at nearby recreational areas like Lema Ranch and Turtle Bay. Lema Ranch, which is home to the McConnell Foundation, is a gorgeous, sprawling property which is only minutes from The Vineyard community. This natural area offers eight miles of walking and biking trails to local residents. The Lema Ranch Trails, which showcase four lovely ponds, consist of four miles of paved walkways spread over a 200-acre area. The Churn Creek Trails, spanning an additional 180 acres, provide another four miles of pathways which are largely unpaved. Bicycles and dogs (on leashes) are allowed on The Churn Creek Trails, but not The Lema Ranch Trails.
In less than 20 minutes, residents at The Vineyard can drive to the impressive Turtle Bay Exploration Park. At the heart of this nature center, Turtle Bay Museum offers interactive exhibits exploring nature, history, science, and art. Grandkids will especially love Paul Bunyon’s Forest Camp, which provides hands-on exhibits, an outdoor play area, an aviary, a butterfly house, and an amphitheater for seasonal animal shows. Turtle Bay’s McConnell Arboretum and Botanical Gardens span over 200 acres and express an important message about the importance of sustainability and harmony within our natural surroundings.
