There’s nothing like visiting a beautiful park and taking in the natural landscape. Not only can being outdoors improve your physical health, it can also help reduce stress and create a greater sense of joy. With rolling hills and valley views as a stunning backdrop, Aliento™ currently has two beautiful parks (Arboleda Park and Ventada Park), with plans for two more parks to open in the near future: Bothwell Park and Dogwood Park. Looking ahead, here are a few fun ideas for spending a day in the parks at Aliento.
Looking for ways to exercise outdoors? In addition to the outdoor exercise deck and event lawn available for use now at The Terrace, the parks and trails at Aliento are perfect for walking, jogging, hiking and cycling, with paths and walkways that meander throughout the community for you and your family to enjoy. And at Ventada Park, the open field is just the right spot for morning yoga, or impromptu games of Frisbee or freeze tag.
Dogs love exercise, too! You’ll soon be able to bring your four-legged friend to Dogwood Park, where there will be plenty of room for them to run and play, and native grasses will enhance the natural surroundings. Read more about dog-friendly fun near Aliento here.
You may need a break from all that walking. The newly opened Ventada Park and future Bothwell Park offer wide open spaces with native plants, grasses and shade structures to relax and take in the beautiful setting. Pack up your checkered blanket and a basket, and plan a family picnic with classic picnic foods like a baguette, cold cuts and cheese; potato salad; watermelon; and lemonade. Or plan a romantic picnic date for two with bubbly beverages, cheese and portable tunes.
Equestrians living at Aliento have one more reason to love where they live. The trails surrounding Aliento offer opportunities for exploring the area on horseback, and equestrian trail access is available from Arboleda Park. The equestrian rest station and covered picnic area provide shady spots where you and your pony can relax and cool off.
Whether you’re looking for somewhere to rest or play, the parks at Aliento will allow residents of all ages to reap the benefits of spending time in nature and soaking up that southern California sunshine.
Can’t wait for Bothwell and Dogwood parks at Aliento to open? The Terrace, our resort-style club for fun and fitness, is fully constructed and ready for you now. On top of two sparkling swimming pools, cabanas, a splash pad and play area, The Terrace also features a green turf area where kids can just be kids.
