This resident’s section also includes our unique Activity Portal with access to a multitude of online activities including eBooks, interactive museum tours, travel videos, fitness instruction, puzzles and brain games, trivia, lectures, Spanish lessons and much more, including a collection of Virtual Reality (VR) videos residents can watch with VR headsets.
Our streets and sidewalks are special. We have streets with sidewalks, streets that are golf cart and bicycle friendly and we constantly monitor the condition of our streets to keep them well repaired. We have homes with mailboxes right out in front so there’s no need to walk to some distant point to get your mail, and we have mailboxes that have non glaring lights to light up your early or late walks.
Amazing Clubhouse facilities with many unique amenities. Our three clubhouses collectively feature indoor and outdoor swimming pools, jetted hot tubs, state-of-the-art-fitness-centers, restaurants, meeting rooms, an extensive library, a ballroom with a professional stage and green room, an auditorium with stadium seating for movies and guest speakers, our billiards room, postal center, craft rooms for art, stained glass and fused glass, ceramics, jewelry, quilting & sewing and so much more, just about everything a resident could possibly be looking for. We even have our own Technology Center with both PC and Apple computers as well as our own 3D printer, equipment to convert 35mm slides to digital, a large format color printer and instructors to provide a wide range of classes for beginners to advanced.
Summer, Spring, Winter, Fall our amenities are designed for it all. We’ve designed our amenities for a full menu of activities year-round including an indoor 75 foot swimming pool and an indoor track. We even cool an outdoor pool in the summer with chilled water so you can have a refreshing swim or just cool off in the water. Sun City’s fitness centers are equipped as well as most outside gyms and fitness centers, in fact we were voted favorite gym in the area. So, whether it’s to keep in tip-top physical shape, improve your cardio fitness, lift some weights, run or walk the indoor track, use all the state-of-the-art exercise equipment, or simply cool by the pool, you can do it all. And of course, our unparalleled range of craft activities are held in air conditions rooms offering a huge range of socialization opportunities and SCPD’s unique activities all year long.
Your pets are very important at SCPD. Many residents have pets, so Sun City Palm Desert provides amenities and support for these loved and valued companions. We have two fenced dog parks where dogs can exercise off leash and several greenbelt areas with paved paths where you can take your dog for a walk or run. Occasionally pets get separated from their owners and our pet rescue volunteers can provide assistance in locating the lost pet. Once a pet is found they can use several methods to find the owner including their chip reader and our pet registry. While the pet’s owner is being located volunteers will care for the lost pet. At Sun City Palm Desert, we understand how important pets are to their owners and have planned our facilities and services to accommodate our residents who own pets.
The most sophisticated Emergency Preparedness in the Valley. If a major earthquake or other serious emergency should occur, our award winning Emergency Preparedness Committee not only has elaborate and well practiced plans to check on and help our residents during the emergency, but also has procedures to rescue lost pets and care for them until their owners can be located. SCPD has a fully equipped Emergency Operations Center as well as a portable Emergency Operations Center we were awarded by the State of California.

We support our residents who still work. A large percentage of our residents are still working so we keep most of our amenities open outside of normal working hours and many of our activities are planned that way as well. We also provide high speed internet, our postal center and even meeting areas and rooms. For more information go to our “Still Working?” section or Click Here.
Amazing Cultural and Recreation offerings are nearby. The cities surrounding Sun City Palm Desert offers enormous recreational, cultural, entertainment, educational, shopping and medical services opportunities. Close-by highways and by-ways get you there in minutes and the Palm Springs International Airport is also just minutes away. 

Our Professional Sports Team and our fantastic arena. The new $500 million Acrisure Arena with an 11,000 capacity is just four miles down the road and is the home of the Coachella Valley Firebirds, the AHL Western Conference winners of both the 2023 and 2024 Calder Cup Championships. Our Coachella Valley Firebirds made it all the way into the 16th minute of the overtime period in the seventh and tie-breaker game of the 2023 Calder Cup Finals, an amazing achievement for the Valley’s ice hockey’s team’s inaugural season that played to sellout crowds in the Acrisure Arena. The Calder Cup is the trophy awarded annually to the playoff champions of the American Hockey League and it was so close to being won in 2023 by the Coachella Valley Firebirds. Now in 2024, with the Coachella Valley solidly behind our beloved professional sports team, the Coachella Valley Firebirds have once again made it all the way to Calder Cup Finals but to the disappointment of their fans, once again lost in overtime.

Top-Tier Concerts and events.  Our amazing Acrisure Arena hosts around 40 home hockey games, more than 40 concerts and 150 other events, from professional and college sports to Monster Trucks, family shows and major concerts including World Tour events at the approximately 11,000 seat venue year-round. The adjoining Iceplex facility is open to all ages and skill levels and offers public skating, a skate academy, the ability to learn to play hockey, as well as the home to an Adult/Junior Hockey League.
