Cooler days are here! And that means plenty of fun activities to enjoy in and around Shady Trails for the whole family.
For residents, the fun starts right at home. The Shady Trails Fall Festival is sure to provide some spooky-good fun with new friends and neighbors. Any time is perfect to head to The Parkhouse, where a variety of spaces to get social await. If you’re feeling a little outdoorsy, head over to one of our many BBQ areas and enjoy an alfresco meal or pick up some of the local farmer market’s freshly harvested vegetables for a wholesome dinner.
If you’re looking to work up an appetite for seasonal treats to come—hello, pumpkin spice lattes—look no further than the fitness center, where you’ll find all your favorite ways to work up a sweat. Or maybe you’re keen to start your mornings with a little yoga and meditation before letting your kids make the most of their big imaginations at the playground.
At Shady Trails, you’re never far from green spaces and natural landscapes that feel like a breath of fresh air. All you have to do is step outside your home. Make the most of a refreshing fall day with a neighborhood walk, play a little soccer with your kids or just relax at Willow Park—without ever leaving the comfort of your community.
With such incredible spaces to spend your time at Shady Trails, it’s easy to forget that there’s a world of fun beyond this active community as well. So when adventure calls, head over to well-loved local trail spots such as Santa Ana Riverwalk Trail for an easy-going walking path that runs alongside the Santa Ana River, and take in the sights along the way. For the more adventurous spirits and experienced hikers, there’s Icehouse Canyon to the Cucamonga Peak Trail or the Third Stream Crossing via Middle Fork Trail—where breathtaking views are guaranteed.
If you’re feeling a little less outdoorsy and more in the need of something cozy, take a short drive and look no further than the Ontario Museum of History & Art. There’s something for every interest and inquisitive mind! Enjoy the Dia De Los Muertos exhibition or get creative with some hands-on art such as the Paint in the Dark: Dia de Los Muertos.
You can also join the Spooky Splash: Halloween Dive Movie at the Fontana Park Aquatic Center or the Halloween Trick-or-Treat Alley at Don Day, Jessie Turner, and Cypress Centers. Let’s be honest though—it wouldn’t be autumn without a visit to your local pumpkin patch. Lucky for you, residents of Shady Trails live close to the Seasonal Adventure Pumpkin Patch in Rancho Cucamonga. Enjoy mechanical rides, blow up slides, obstacle courses, bounce houses, a petting zoo, and a train. There’s also the Live Oak Canyon Pumpkin Patch in Yucaipa, just a short 35-minute drive away! Fun rides, games, corn mazes, delicious food, and perfect family photo ops await you.
At the end of it all, you have the ingredients for a perfect fall right in your own home. Gather around your kitchen island to DIY some themed crafts with the kids or grab your family recipe book and bake away! Whether you choose Grandma’s classic pumpkin pie, caramel apples or any other classic Fall treat, your spacious gourmet kitchen will have plenty of room for a delicious evening of family-bonding. End the night on another high—grab your freshly baked treat, a cozy blanket and settle into your spacious great room or loft for movie night!
