Desert Club Estates in La Quinta

Thursday, May 3rd, 2012

Desert Club in La Quinta… where winter never comes!

La Quinta 30th Anniversary– Desert Clubdesert club

 

















 

Kids now swim, frolic and play at the Fritz Burns Park and Community Pool, but it was once an exclusive playground for adults know at The Desert Club.  In the 1930′s and 1940′s  the Desert Club was a magnet for celebrities like Rita Hayworth. There were frequent poolside parties  in an informal setting, where guest could wear anything from “dress clothes to dungarees.”

Desert Club Estates is now a neighborhood in La Quinta with eclectic homes ranging from $250,000- $600,000.  Currently there are 7 active listings with 3 of them with offers and “contingent” status. The homes in Desert Club Estates are single-story, most with private pools, and no HOA’s.  The neighborhood is located close to Old Town La Quinta, La Quinta Resort, golf and shopping!

Desert Club advertisements touted La Quinta as the place “where winter never comes!”

Bicycle Rodeo and Safety Fair in La Quinta!

Bicycle Rodeo in La Quinta! Yee-HAW!

Fourth Annual Bicycle Rodeo and Safety Fair

February 25, 2012

Bicycle Rodeos were one of my favorite events growing up– I’m happy to report that La Quinta is hosting their 4th Annual event this month!

The La Quinta Police Department Traffic Services Team is hosting their Fourth

Annual “Bicycle Rodeo and Safety Fair” on Saturday, February 25. A bike rodeo

is a one-day training event that provides an opportunity for young bicyclists

to practice and develop skills that will help them become better bicyclists and

avoid typical crashes.

WHAT IS A BICYCLE RODEO?

It features safety inspections, rules of the road, and helmet safety. The goal is to

empower young cyclists, with a minimal set of skills, for on-road riding. Free

bicycle helmets will be given while the supply lasts.

RIDE THE BICYCLE SAFETY COURSE

Young cyclists will experience riding on a miniature course where they can learn

how to apply the rules of the road. An officer will point out hazards and offer

safety tips. Riders will learn about blind corners, stopping at stop signs, staying

off sidewalks, yielding to pedestrians, intersections, crosswalks, and driveways.

HERE ARE THE DETAILS!!!

What? Fourth Annual Bicycle Rodeo and Safety Fair  

When? February 25, 2012 (Saturday)

Time? 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM

Where? La Quinta Park (Adams Street and Blackhawk Way)

Who? All ages are welcome

We hope to see you at the BIKE RODEO!
