The community is almost entirely targeted to those 55 and older and includes unparalleled recreation opportunities: 13 busy recreation centers, seven golf courses and miles of hiking and biking to name a few.
Facing the majestic Santa Rita Mountains 20 miles south of Tucson, Green Valley offers many housing options, from townhomes and condos to single-family homes, both new and existing homes that have been developed by many local, national, and semi-custom home-builders.
Green Valley attracts homebuyers from all over North America, Europe and Asia, drawn by its peaceful atmosphere, abundant recreational opportunities and an average 300 days of sunshine.
Perhaps the biggest attraction is Green Valley Recreation Inc. The recreation provider has more than 13,000 households as members. GVR completely redefines the term ‘Retirement Community’ by offering so much to do that its activity brochure reads like a college course catalog. Sure, there are the social clubs and card clubs, but athletes also line up for pickleball, tennis, swimming, biking and hiking. Members also sign up for woodworking, lapidary, dance, aerobics, yoga and other activities. While most retirement communities are limited to one clubhouse - GVR’s 13 clubhouses and fitness centers are open to all members, as are all the specialty shops and pools.
Though home buyers come from all over, they have formed a unique sense of community, bonding together through the world-class facilities and clubs maintained by Green Valley Recreation, Inc., by diverse social and entertainment opportunities, and in volunteering their talents and energy with numerous service, civic and charitable organizations. And while there is the Alaska Club, the Green Bay Packers Club and other organizations focused on hometowns and teams. Residents can also serve on the boards of Home Owners Associations for one of the 100 plus different communities in Green Valley.
Green Valley is within easy reach of Tucson’s shopping to the north and the artists’ enclave of Tubac to the south, both along Interstate 19. To the east is Madera Canyon within the Coronado National Forest, which attracts bird-watchers from around the world, as well local hikers and campers. Just to the north beyond a shopping area, is Sahuarita, an all-ages community. Sahuarita has a small lake that is stocked monthly by Arizona Fish and Game and offers miles of trails, tree lined streets and the continuation of the historical De Anza Trail.
