Loma Vista Estates is a community of manufactured homes that is a 15-minute drive to central Yuma and pet services, including shops, veterinarians, groomers, and kennels. Loma Vista Estates has its own recreational area with a tennis court, soccer goals, basketball court, swimming pool, and playground equipment for residents to enjoy, and provides a walking destination for residents with their pets.
Loma Vista Estates, like much of Yuma, is flat and walking does not involve any significant changes in elevation. Loma Vista is a manufactured home, residential community with mostly artificial and desert landscaping. There are some mature trees in the community, but due to the climate, desert landscaping is more prevalent and green lawns are not common. There are some sidewalks in the community to separate pedestrians from traffic. When walking with your dog it is advisable to choose a route with separate pedestrian ways and watch for local traffic when walking on roadways. Surrounding undeveloped desert areas provide some rougher landscape, and trails along the nearby canal can also feature uneven terrain. You may want to wear good footwear to protect from uneven ground, heat, and venomous critters in the area. To the north are irrigated farms, which provide a change of scene for Loma Vista residents from the desert landscape.
Watch out for local wildlife that may be endangered. Living in a desert climate is hard enough for these critters without tangling with local dogs! Also, some local wildlife such as snakes and scorpions are venomous and can present a hazard to curious dogs. Keep your dog leashed and consider training him to avoid these animals.
