Fun Activities for a Day at Estrella's Signature Parks and Trails
We can’t imagine a better way to enjoy the outdoors than with these fun activities at the community’s signature parks.
South Lake Park is the perfect picnic spot – but don’t just make mom the chef. Get the whole family involved with items like fruit skewers that even the littlest of helpers can make. That way, it won’t feel like such a chore when prepping a meal for the whole family.
Enjoy your picnic lakeside to take in the beautiful scenery and soak up some sun – just don’t forget the sunscreen. Pack some card games that everyone can play while sitting under the ramadas. Feeling competitive? Challenge the kids to a friendly (or not so friendly) game of pickleball by joining the Estrella Pickleball Club. You can even sign up for a FREE basic pickleball lesson. For those with younger kids, check out the park’s playground and sand volleyball courts.
The weather is getting warmer and it’s officially becoming water season. Head out for a fun-filled afternoon on the lake that gets you moving and having a good time. The Estrella Yacht Club has a number of activities to choose from including canoeing, paddle boating, and sail boating. Be sure to take the sailing course through the yacht club prior to taking a cruise. The best part? Rentals are free for residents!
50+ Miles of Trails
If exploring Arizona’s beautiful terrain is more your style, it’s time to pack it up and hit the trails for a morning of adventure. You can check out the What’s in Your Bag: Hiking edition to ensure you’re fully prepared prior to leaving the house. Key items to bring include sunscreen, plenty of water, and your camera. With opportunities for fun family photos or wildlife sightings, you’ll want to capture those memories to last a lifetime. With more than 50 miles of trails, there’s a path for every fitness level.

Bougainvillea Park in the Montecito village is great for large gatherings with covered seating, volleyball and tennis courts, a playground and BBQ grills. Call up your friends and bring the whole crew out for a day full of family fun. Kids can enjoy the large play area or chase each other around the expansive grassy areas. Enjoy some adult time while you chat nearby and cook up some good food, all while still being able to keep an eye on your littles.
