This is the second of the Del Webb communities located in the west valley.   It is just west of

Space has been provided for 270 garden plots for those wishing to grow fresh vegetables and flowers year-round.  The Sun Cities Saddle Club offers residents a place to keep a horse and to join others in trail rides.  A large, secure storage lot provides space for RVs, boats and trailers when they are not being used.  Even the dogs have their own Doggie Park.
