Sun Lakes

Portrait Of Four Friends Enjoying A Game Golf

Sun Lakes is a large Active Adult Community in the south-east valley built by Robson.  The total community is close to 6 square miles, divided north and south by Riggs Road and east and west by Dobson and Alma School Roads.  It has three 18 hole private golf courses, one 18 hole and three 9 hole public courses. It is a golf cart friendly community with reserved golf cart parking at all of the recreation centers. There are five clubhouses, one for each section.  There are several restaurants and cafes within the recreation facilities.   

It separates itself into three neighborhoods with 3 separate HOAs.

The first neighborhood, Sun Lakes #1 was started in the mid 70’s, and consists of manufactured homes and small casitas.  

The next neighborhoods built include Cottonwood and  the gated Palo Verde,  followed by Oakwood and Ironwood completed in 2004.  Both Oakwood and Ironwood are gated.    

The most recently completed neighborhood is Oakwood which combined with Ironwood is called IronOaks.  There are some unusually large homes there, as compared to most Active Adult Communities, even having some two story homes. All five sections have homes backing up to lakes and golf courses. Oakwood and Ironwood share large recreation complexes which include the fitness center, tennis club, golf club, pools, craft and games, libraries and restaurants.

Each of the three main neighborhoods have club houses, activities centers, exercise rooms, tennis courts and swimming pools.  The size and number of each amenity varies.  For example each of the neighborhoods has tennis courts, but the IronOaks clubhouse has a dozen courts with a membership tennis club and a membership fitness center.   The HOA fees in each section cover use of that section’s basic facilities. Use of the more enhanced facilities, such as the IronOaks Tennis club, is available by separate membership fees.

Westbrook Village


Happy Senior Couple Outside Cooking on A Summer BarbecueWestbrook Village in Peoria
: Located just west of the 101 between Beardsley and Union Hills, Westbrook Village was designed with a small town village concept as the goal. It has achieved that while offering a broad mix within its 4000 homes.  Choose from luxurious 3 car garage homes sitting comfortably on their oversized lots to the lock and leave 900 sq ft apartment style condos overlooking the golf course.   The Village has two 18 hole golf courses and two fully equipped recreation centers, The Lakes and The Vistas.  It has two restaurants as well.  Among the many active groups in the community is the Westbrook Village Players. This theatrical group puts on 2 plays a year, spring and fall, and all interested residents are invited to participate in these presentations. Westbrook Village was built by UDC in 1983 with completion of Phase 2 in 1999.  It is well located for major shopping, convenient to big event sports facilities and fast freeway access.  It is often described as "lush with greenery" referring to the abundance of trees and shrubs and the attention to landscaping so often missing in a community.

Sun City Grand

Senior Couple Running In The WoodsIn 1996 construction began on Sun City Grand just to the west and south of Sun City West, with Grand Avenue (Rt. 60) being a divider.  This Active Adult Community was to have a greater range of home sizes.  It was smaller with only 10,000 homes, 5 pools and 3 golf courses.   The community was sold out in 2004. This community is truly “grand”, the facilities are extensive and include 5 activity centers, with meeting rooms, classrooms, 2 with complete fitness set ups, 2 with indoor and outdoor pools, and even a ballroom in one! The play courts are as varied as the centers, there are 12 pickle ball courts, 14 tennis courts and 8 Bocce Ball courts scattered around the community.

Residences vary tremendously. There are one bedroom condos with less than 1000 sq ft complete with their own community pool and clubhouse which are a popular choice for many as winter getaways. The luxurious estate homes sprawl over ¼ acre and many exceed 3,000 sq. ft. There is truly a home in Sun City Grand for every taste, be it an escape for a few weeks at a time or full time lavish living. This is definitely not your Grandparents retirement center.
