Excitement about Verrado’s new Heritage District continues to build as its amenities come to life. Among the most important amenities are neighborhood parks. With 66 planned throughout Verrado, parks are clearly a central feature in our community’s design.
Parks improve livability for Verrado residents – they offer a great place for friends and family to gather, a place for kids to play, and provide an excellent setting to get to know your neighbors. Research has shown you are more likely to be happy if you live near a park. It’s no wonder Verrado has such happy residents!
Here are even more reasons parks are important in our community, and a preview of a few of the 16 Heritage District parks you can look forward to enjoying very soon.
Parks keep the environment healthy by preserving open space and wildlife habitats. At Verrado, we take great pride with our connection to the natural desert. Desert Crossing Park will have native plants and surrounding washes that will create a tranquil space where you’re sure to spot quail, rabbits, or the occasional road runner.
Parks are a place for plant life to flourish. At Rosemont garden you’ll find formal gardens with manicured hedges and lush landscaping – and, of course, a rose garden.
Parks facilitate social interaction among neighbors. Cambridge Plaza will be an idyllic spot for formal events or casual strolls. Weddings, cocktail parties, or quiet everyday gatherings will be right at home amid serene palms and a bubbling water feature.
Park Meadows will be Heritage’s biggest play area, with a huge open lawn, and chock full of play structures. A Spanish-Colonial style ramada will provide respite from the sun and place to refuel for more fun.
These parks, along with the Heritage Swim Park and much anticipated Verrado Dog Park (location is temporary – permanent location to be determined at a future date), give you even more enticing reasons to spend quality time in the big outdoors.
