Considering the climate and the overall general location of Oro Valley, it makes sense that the city has a place to cool off like the Oro Valley Aquatic Center. Suffice to say this venue is a premier aquatic facility. Visitors will find the typical winding water slides and splash pools, but this is also a facility that can host or sponsor competition-level events. This includes a 50-meter pool that is equipped with the latest scoring, timing, and sensor equipment. The center is open throughout the year and the pools are heated in case the temperatures get a bit chilly.
Oro Valley Country Cl
If you are in Arizona, you will not have a problem finding a golf course and this is no less true in Oro Valley. One of the premier spots to hit the links in the city is the Oro Valley Country Club (OVCC). The club features a championship golf course originally designed by Robert Bruce Harris and is host to a number of competitions each year. The scenic background provides an idyllic backdrop as you play through the course. There is also a state-of-the-art fitness center on the premises for members and their guests to enjoy. By any standard, OVCC is a quality golfing venue.
Arizona State Museum
The Arizona State Museum is a treasure, not just for the residents of Oro Valley and the immediate Tucson Metropolitan area, but for the entire Southwest region of the U.S. This anthropological museum is the oldest such institution in the region with its establishment in 1893. It continues to showcase the artifacts that recount the history and peoples of the American Southwest, as well as acts as a leading sponsor for continued anthropological research. Visitors can view an expansive collection of artifacts that includes ceremonial masks, pottery, and more. A visit to this museum is a welcoming and educational experience.
