In a nutshell, here’s the recap of how to get to Gladden Farms, Marana, AZ.
It’s located just off Interstate 10, taking the Tangerine/Tangerine Farms Road exit. Travel west about 5 minutes, and you’ll find Gladden Farms on your right. The road was completed approximately a year ago, and features a wide four-lane highway divided by median, walking trail, bike routes, and acres of beautifully maintained landscaping. The entire route is lit at night, making walking and biking enjoyable once the hot summer sun has set.
Along Lon Adams road, on the right, is a fitness trail. Athletes and athletic aspire-ee’s can do sit-ups, pull-ups, arm walks, stretches, sprints, and more along the scenic circle course. A Biggest Loser participatory event was held early spring in the community, and experts showed residents how to best utilize the facilities.
Putting green anyone?
