I wanted to feature Melrose Paradise Recreation Club, spreading the word to those in our community who may want to participate in the 50th reunion.
One of the best kept secrets in Melrose Paradise is an approximate 2 acre parcel of land located at 30th St. & Lupine Ave. (North of Cholla St. & South of Cactus), it is home to the Melrose Paradise Recreation Club.
Melrose as we call it, is an outdoor community recreation facility with amenities including a four lane pool, Snack Shack, bathrooms with showers, volley ball, tether ball, basketball, playground and is also home to the Melrose Makos Swim Team which is part of the recreational Desert Swim League. Melrose also offers swim instruction, as well as hosts many family friendly seasonal events.
Melrose is celebrating 50 years in operation this Fall. It’s a not-for-profit organization founded in 1961 by a hand full of ambitious neighbors determined to provide an oasis in the desert for their families. Thanks to their legacy we will be hosting a 50th reunion event Sept. 3, 2011(Adults only) and also on Sept. 5, 2011(Family Potluck BBQ).
You may explore the Melrose website at www.MelroseMakos.com which will also provide a link for Facebook and the reunion invite
