Play (Host) Days at Shady Trails

So you’ve found the way home at Shady Trails! The natural next step: Gather your loved ones and experience the community together.

Every neighborhood offers flexible floor plans with spacious great rooms and entertainment-ready kitchens boasting inviting backsplashes and center islands to display appetizers or potluck dishes. Plus, there are plenty of outdoor spaces for open-air entertaining options. Take your pick of covered porches and larger decks at Birch Bend by Tri Pointe Homes, covered decks at Juniper by PLC Communities or private courtyards at Aspen Court by Taylor Morrison. All you need is a refreshment stand, a few hors d’oeuvres and an afternoon playlist of feel-good songs to set the right mood and draw guests outside.


If it’s too chilly for alfresco activities, bring the gang inside for warm beverages and dessert. At Wisteria by Richmond American Homes, your teens and tweens can continue the festivities upstairs in the loft space—perfectly designed to entertain your kids while you keep an “ear” on them. All while the adults can gather in the study-turned-evening-lounge to share drinks, new stories and old memories well into the night.


Head to The Parkhouse for further fun! This 15,000-square-foot recreational hub is an entertainment source for all ages. Host a challenging double date on the tennis court or on the putting green. Bring your children, nieces and nephews to the nearby park spaces and three tot lots. Or snuggle up with your partner for movie night in the cozy theater.


Hosting a party? You can rent out the multipurpose room at The Parkhouse—complete with ample seating, a balcony and an attached catering kitchen—or the comfortable lounge at The Retreat with plush sofas and a kitchenette. Click here to take a virtual tour of The Parkhouse.


The Retreat Pool and Spa


The Retreat, the second recreation center at Shady Trails, will extend the group festivities. Challenge your pals to a relay race in the pool or a pickup basketball game on the half court. If you’d rather relax, bask in the California sun on one of the sundecks or escape the heat at the shade arbor. Don’t forget to soak up those moments of calm in the spa! Click here for a virtual tour of The Retreat to see if the space will fit your next event—be it a family reunion or a retirement celebration!


If your guests are still looking for more playtime options, Willow Park offers the perfect scene for outdoor sports enthusiasts. Grab your most competitive pals for a game of soccer or let the kids loose on the playground. Be sure to bring your pup—he’ll meet new friends and get plenty of exercise in the dog park. Bring everyone together at the end of the day for a flavorful barbecue dinner and a few rounds of cornhole in the picnic area.


Shady Trails knows how important your community is—friends, family, neighbors, co-workers and beyond. With spacious floor plans, ample outdoor options and multiple recreation centers, entertaining your loved ones at home has never been simpler.
