Retirement Community with lakeviews at Leisure World in Mesa Az.

Leisure World was established in 1972 and I’m sure it was considered to be “way out there” in east Mesa.  Now this 1.5 square mile active adult/retirement lakefront gated community with waterfront homes is part of the greater Phoenix area that connects seamlessly with the rest of Mesa and neighboring cities.  Build out occured in 1994 with over 2,600 homes, both condos and single family homes,  built by three builders; Western Savings, Dietz Crane, and Rossmoor. Leisure World residents can be a young as age 45, as long as 80 percent of all residents are 55 and over.

Golf Courses, Swimming, Fitness Center and more

Residents and homeowners at Leisure World will have no problem keeping active amid the numerous amenities and activities.  They can choose from two 18 hole golf courses, a fitness center, 3 outdoor pools, 6 tennis courts, shuffleboard, bocce ball courts, aerobic studio, woodworking shop, sewing room, a computer lab, and more.  These facilities allow Leisure World residents to enjoy yoga, pilates, dance aerobics, golf, bingo, progressive bridge, woodworking, lapidary, and other organized classes and groups.   A casual walk around the activities center reveals the extent to which a Leisure World homeowner can design and enjoy their own lifestyle.
