As a resident at Alondra or Cortesa, Mom will have full access to the incredible 55+ Gavilán amenities within and around The Ranch, including:

The Getaway
This is the most recent amenity to open at Gavilán, with fire pits for sweet summer nights under the stars and cozy sitting areas to catch up with friends.

South Paw Dog Park
The Ranch is also pet-friendly! South Paw Dog Park is a beautiful spot to play fetch with your favorite pup and meet some fellow dog lovers and their companions. There’s even dog watering and washing stations so that they can cool off on hot summer days!

The Canyon House
After Mom and her pup enjoy the morning at the dog park, she can take a leisurely stroll to get her morning cup of coffee at The Canyon House, the community’s very own onsite coffee shop. Snacks and other treats are also available!

Esencia Farm
Does Mom have a green thumb? There’s a whole area designated for growing fresh produce in the community, including: planter beds, a greenhouse, a toolshed, and orchards. There’s also a courtyard for fun gardening demonstrations and workshops.
