One of the perks of living in Palm Springs is the year-round outdoor living, and that’s one of the things that residents in the community of Sunrise Park love. This neighborhood is also in the central part of the city, but not as close to the busy downtown area as other communities. It is also near the Palm Springs Swim Center, which offers an Olympic-size pool that is open all year long to the public.
Sunrise Park is one of the more economical communities of this region and features ranch-style and mid-century modern designs. The community park has a baseball field, basketball court, grills, picnic areas, restroom facilities, and playgrounds. Home amenities include slate floors, stack stone fireplaces, new HVAC systems, and enhanced kitchens. The master bedrooms often have access to the pool area and many homes have additional bedroom suites. The private backyards can sprawling lawns, barbecue islands, sparkling pools, and spectacular views. The Palm Springs Unified School District provides facilities like Katherine Finchy Elementary, Raymond Cree Middle School, and Palm Springs High School.
Palm Springs is a hubbub of activity and welcomes over a million visitors a year. It is known for its many hotels, golf courses, and hot springs. And it’s a popular spot for mid-century modern architecture. The main shopping district is along Palm Canyon Drive with its posh boutiques, design shops, and excellent restaurants. And there are many outdoor recreational activities in Coachella Valley which offers horseback riding, hiking, and biking.
The valley also has more golf courses than any other California region. The 100th course was opened in 2001 and the area is the site of the PGA Tour’s Human Challenge which partners with the Clinton Foundation. This was once the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic. The first golf courses opened in the 1920’s with the O’Donnell Golf Club and the El Mirador Hotel course.
