Now, perhaps more than ever, health and wellness matter. Tesoro Viejo, Madera County’s newest, award-winning master planned community delivers on expansive open space and amenities for exercise and recreation that supports the wellbeing of the entire family.
In recent months, where you live has become more important than ever. The array of homes at Tesoro Viejo provide flexible spaces for home offices, home gyms and acres of community open spaces, parks, trails, and recreational amenities to support a healthy lifestyle.
Tesoro Viejo’s 14-mile trail system allows residents to get out into the vast, open space for a challenging morning hike or an easy evening stroll through the neighborhoods. The walkable community connects residents to the many amenities.
“Fitness and well-being are an integral part of Tesoro Viejo,” said Brent McCaffrey, president of Tesoro Viejo Development. “This community offers many options for staying active and fit.”
It’s easy to maintain a healthy lifestyle at Tesoro Viejo with the resort-style clubhouse/recreation center, The Ranch House. Residents can swim laps year-round in the heated lap pool, improve their strength with the brand-new fitness equipment in the Flex Room, as well as enjoy a yoga class outside on the lawn.
The expansive neighborhood parks provide endless opportunities for both kids and adults to enjoy. From the playground equipment to the bocce ball courts, the neighborhood parks are a place for all ages to get outside and get active. The sidewalks throughout the neighborhoods are lined with mature trees from the on-site tree nursery that was planted more than 10 years ago.
Tesoro Viejo is a perfect example of a sustainable community that promotes the health of the environment, which –in turn – promotes the health of residents. And they have been awarded two prominent awards for doing exactly that.
Tesoro Viejo was awarded in 2016 the Outstanding Planning Award in Innovation in Green Community Planning by the American Planning Association’s California Central for its efforts to create and maintain a vibrant and healthy community. Last year, Tesoro Viejo received Award of Excellence from the San Joaquin Valley Blueprint Awards for its sustainability efforts.
Both awards lauded the community’s design as a true walkable community. The miles of walking paths and trails connect the entire community, allowing residents to walk from their homes to the community’s many amenities from the neighborhood parks and school to the Town Center and clubhouse.
A true neighborhood school allows for students to walk and ride their bike to school, and that’s what Hillside Elementary School is all about because it is located in the heart of Hillside Village. Serving students in transitional kindergarten through 8th grade, the school has a strong focus on science and technology and boasts an “outdoor classroom” concept for hands-on learning and extensive extra-curricular activities.
The 14-miles of community trails with scenic vistas and nearly 200 acres of permanent open space allows residents to connect with nature and stay healthy. The trail system includes six unique trails designed to connect people with the natural beauty of the community. The trails are suitable for walking, jogging, and biking throughout the natural landscape of the community and connects beyond the community to the banks of the San Joaquin River.
“From Beaver Pond to Buck Meadow, Tesoro Viejo is a special place – we are thrilled that these trails connect people to the natural beauty of this land, while supporting their health and wellness,” McCaffrey said.
