Gina Estrada smiled as she watched her grandchildren run toward the play structure at Cordon Park, Tesoro Viejo’s new neighborhood park.
She – along with her brother and daughter – are among the first residents at Tesoro Viejo and they could not be happier to all be in the same neighborhood where her grandchildren can walk to school and they can meet up in the neighborhood parks.
And it’s not just family who will be Gina’s neighbors – she has two sets of friends who are also buying homes at Tesoro Viejo and will be her neighbors.
On an unusually cool morning in late June, Gina was joined by community members and leaders to officially celebrate the opening of Cordon Park.
Cordon Park is one of two new neighborhood parks in the Hillside Village at Tesoro Viejo for residents and the guests to enjoy. With a focus on family, the park’s the main attraction is the extensive play structure for children ages five to 12 with three swings, including a tot swing and a large turf area. Families can enjoy picnics in the park with two shade structures, picnic tables and built-in BBQs. The mounded hills, large open area, pet waste station, and restroom will allow families and neighbors enjoy the outdoors for years to come.
In addition to Cordon Park, Hillside Village also features Harvest Park, which has a more sophisticated approach to outdoor enjoyment. The stately open-air event barn in Harvest Park provides endless opportunities for community and family gatherings in addition to its expansive grassy areas and shade trees.
Tesoro Viejo includes nearly 200 acres of permanently preserved natural open spaces plus an additional 200 acres or more of neighborhood parks, recreational areas and miles of trails that will connect to the San Joaquin River.
Gina and her husband needed less space in their home, but they did not want to give up on high-end amenities. They found that at Tesoro Viejo. For Gina and her family, Tesoro Viejo was the perfect community because it accommodates the various stages of life that the members of her family are in – from raising children to downsizing, Tesoro Viejo fits everyone’s needs.
“Cordon Park officially opens!” said Gina Estrada, as she cut the red ribbon with her grandchildren alongside her.
