This is my third and final installment of A Pictorial Walk Along the Pathways of Gladden Farms, Marana, AZ. 

Part 1 of A Pictorial Walk Along the Pathways featured a sampling of photos covering five miles of trails that criss-cross over 35 acres of greenbelts, gardens, parks, orchards, and pathways.

Part 2 of A Pictorial Walk Along the Pathways took you through the eyes of a child, photographing some of the many parks and fun things for children and families to enjoy in Gladden Farms, Marana, AZ.

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.

Green Grass, workout equipment, Fitness TrailAlong 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.

Biking paths circle the master-planned community and connect easily to rural roads “peopled” by cyclists out on weekend tours.

Mondays, the market is open to the public.  The Marana Heritage River Park is a ten acre working farm with historic buildings.  A miniature rail road, parking, and art exhibits are part of the park’s future.
