The Groves is a community which derived its name from the citrus orchards that once dominated its acreage in East Mesa.
McKellips Road and the upscale neighborhood of Spyglass Estates, as this map illustrates, border this subdivision to the north. Its southern boundary takes a stretch of University Drive as well as an extensive length of the Mesa Greenbelt City Park. Greenfield Road traverses the eastern perimeter of the Groves, and the Eastern Canal Trail borders its western periphery.
There are several neighborhoods within the groves, a few of which retain pockets of the iconic East Mesa citrus orchards. These subdivisions include Estate Grove Valencia Estates, Trovita Estates, Eastview Estates, Mahogany, and Montecito,
The typical home listings in the Groves start from builds during the late 1990s in modest two-bedroom, two-bath configurations within floor areas of 1,070 square feet. Up the scale of choices, available properties in this community could level up to a newly built 7,200-square-foot home featuring five bedrooms and six baths.
Amenities: The residences of the Groves are in close proximity to several parks. Prominent among these is the Mountain View Park and Vista Monterey Park. Additionally, the residents of this community can enjoy the nearby multi-use trails and pathways of the 15.5-mile long Eastern Canal Trail and the 18-mile bike loop provided by the canal system northeast near McKellips Road.
Economic opportunities can likewise be potentially drawn from the Groves’ proximity to the Falcon Field Airport ranked as the 5th busiest general-aviation airport in the U.S. Notably, this airport has recently launched a campaign to draw more airlines to its runways and terminal. A cutting-edge business park oriented mainly on medical research and technology is also on the drawing boards near this airport.
Commercial establishments are within easy reach from the Groves. The destinations for shopping and dining close to this community include Greenfield & Main Shopping Center, Main Street Shopping Center, and Superstition Springs Shopping Center.
Pickup games of soccer and softball can be enjoyed at Cooley Park near this subdivision too. In addition, the Toro Stadium of Mountain View High School just west of the Groves is a popular for its annual charity event “Running with the Bulls” 5K and 10K footraces.
Schools: Besides this school, there are many other institutions for learning convenient to the Groves. Among these are Highland Elementary, Entz Elementary, Field Elementary, Hale Elementary and Poston Junior High. Private schools, like Montessori International School, are also within easy reach from this community.
