The Mission of Preserve Vistoso is to

support the preservation of 208 acres of Sonoran Desert

The 208 acres that once was the Vistoso Golf Course presents the beauty of the Sonoran desert teeming with wildlife and artifacts of the Native Americans who lived and hunted there. The existing 6.2-mile, 8 foot-wide concrete path winds through the property providing visitors with views of the Catalina and Tortolita mountains, examples of varied desert vegetation, and the opportunity to view an abundance of wildlife. With easy access from multiple locations, visitors can stroll the property and connect with the natural world we tend take for granted. Join us to help Preserve Vistoso.
