2019 Spring Program Guide

March | April | May


Welcome

to the new seasonal DC Ranch Program Guide

One of the best ways to foster the DC Ranch Brand

Promise of “Living Connected” is to offer opportunities

for the community to interact and come together.

This new Program Guide is aimed at keeping residents

informed, in full detail, about the many classes, activities,

clubs and events available during the busiest times of

year. The spring issue focuses on March, April and May,

while the fall issue will cover October, November and

December.

High-quality programs and events are at the heart

of the DC Ranch community. Just as DC Ranch itself

was founded through thoughtful planning and careful

consideration, so are these programs and events.

Whether you want to learn about the arts, play games,

engage in discussions, or explore greater Scottsdale area

attractions, DC Ranch residents can enjoy a full range

of interesting activities. DC Ranch also offers a variety

of classes to help residents meet their fitness goals and

connect with other residents.

With feedback from residents during the annual

Programs and Events Open House and the Resident

survey conducted every three years (coming soon), the

selection of classes and events have been expanded

and adjusted to meet changing needs and interests. For

example, last year’s 20 for 20 Hiking Challenge was so

popular that it has been added as an ongoing guided

hiking program called the DC Ranch Hiking Group!

There is also a new collection of classes that tie in to

the community value of Lifelong Learning. The Lifelong

Learning Series launched in January, with a variety of

topics, to enrich the lives of residents with a passion for

knowledge.

The hope is that this guide inspires residents to connect

and that it will be a useful resource all season long.

Check the calendar on DCRanch.com for the most up to

date information and to register for events!

As always, please reach out

with any suggestions for

improving the community

experience at DC Ranch.

PATH & TRAILS

The DC Ranch network of path and

trails connects residents throughout

the neighborhoods, parks, McDowell

Sonoran Preserve, commercial and

community centers. With over 50

miles of paths and trails, it’s one of

the best ways to explore the area,

connect with neighbors and maintain

a healthy lifestyle.

In the spring of 2018, as part of

the DC Ranch 20th anniversary

celebration, the Community Council

partnered with Okanogan Trail

Construction (OTC) to begin a

yearlong capital improvement. OTC

experts were tasked with completing

a survey of the existing path and

trail system, creating a list of

recommendations and improvements

for safety and connectivity, updating

the existing trail map and designing

and installing wayfinding signs,

kiosks, pedestals and emergency

markers.

With these projects nearing

completion, a hiking forum and trail

hikes are scheduled to introduce

residents to the new maps and

wayfinding system. The forum is

scheduled on Monday, April 22 from

5:30 to 7 p.m. at the Desert Camp

Community Center. Members of OTC,

The McDowell Mountain Conservancy

and City of Scottsdale will be there

to discuss how the trails work

together and answer any questions.

Light snacks and beverages will be

provided. The first of four hikes is

scheduled for Saturday, April 27 at

9 a.m. where residents will explore

Silverleaf and the Desert Parks trail

located in the McDowell Sonoran

Preserve. More information about the

hikes can be found on pages 7 and 8.
