School’s out for the summer, and that leaves many kids and teens with a lot of free time. Here you’ll find five reminders for Las Sendas residents that you can use as talking points with your family.
Most of our parks and pools are open between 6:00 am and 10:00 pm every day. Establishing curfews for your family can help to keep them safe and out of trouble.
Especially here in the Arizona desert, there are extreme fire risks with such dry weather. Remind your family to not play with candles, matches, lighters, or anything else that might spark a fire. Encourage bonfires and city-approved fireworks only in the safety of your backyard.
It is imperative for drivers to follow all traffic laws within our community. Nowhere in Las Sendas is the speed limit more than 35 miles per hour. Try taking your family members out driving at night to make sure they don’t miss signage, including stop signs.
You might also discuss how active Las Sendas residents are, which presents a higher risk of an accident with a pedestrian or cyclist. Additionally, a common after-hours complaint we receive is that people appear to be throwing objects such as eggs or water balloons at passing cars. While this may seem harmless, it has the potential to harm vehicles and distract drivers, potentially leading to accidents.
Vandalism of any kind is not tolerated here in Las Sendas. Destruction of property costs everyone, not just the vandals.
5. FUN SUMMERTIME ACTIVITIES
Most importantly of all, there are so many fun recreational activities available in our neighborhood! With pools, tennis courts, volleyball courts, bocce ball, basketball courts, and several trails around the community, this summer is the perfect time to get moving outdoors. For those who are looking for more adrenalin, check out the nearby Desert Trails bike park on Recker. Whatever you do, be sure to remind your family to stay hydrated, spend time in the shade, and wear sunscreen.
As we all work together, we’re in for a fun and safe summer here at beautiful Las Sendas!
