Recreational Opportunities

Aquatic Center

In addition to the broad range of recreational options like tennis‚ soccer‚ little league‚ swimming‚ tennis and hiking that are available within The Ranch‚ there are also an extraordinary number of other options “in the neighborhood."

Perhaps the most prominent is the McDowell Mountain Ranch Aquatic Center on the corner of Thompson Peak Parkway and McDowell Mountain Ranch Road. This city-run complex includes a family recreation pool‚ a zero-depth play pool‚ a lap/competition pool‚ a "lazy river‚" and a waterslide. There’s also a bathhouse with locker rooms‚ a public fitness center and various other amenities.

Next‚ there’s the Gateway to McDowell Sonoran Preserve. The entrance is off Thompson Peak Parkway and just north of Bell Road and the center serves as the trailhead for miles of interconnecting paths that crisscross the central preserve. Just to the west of The Ranch off Bell Road in the vicinity of the TPC golf course is the Scottsdale Sports Center. This wonderful 71 acre complex accommodates flat field sports like soccer‚ lacrosse‚ football‚ and rugby. There are a total of 10 fields and 4 are lighted for night use.

Then there’s the Alltel Ice Den which is also located on Bell Road but in an area generally referred to as Horseman’s Park. This fabulous skating facility offers op-tions ranging from open skating to figure skating to hockey. It even serves as the home field for the Coyotes Curling Club.

And of course‚ there’s the Sanctuary Golf Course on 105th Street and Sheena Drive. This 6‚624 yard par 71 facility is one of the few golf courses in the country to have attained the coveted and environmentally progressive Audubon Signature Status.

There are also a number of privately owned businesses offering recreational opportu-nities in the nearby Horseman’s Park area along Bell Road. Here you can find alter-natives like rock climbing‚ dance‚ physical fitness clubs and self-defense. Some are loosely organized into an association known as The Family Zone and their proximity to The Ranch makes them a major asset.
