Palm Springs is well known for its mid-century modern architecture and the residential area of Victoria Park shares that passion. It features many “Alexander homes” from the 1950’s and 1960’s, all built by the Alexander Construction Company, and designed by Dan Palmer and William Krisel.
Jack Meiselmann brought his designs to this area as well and his homes feature large glass walls to allow full view of the swimming pool and landscape. The Alexander-built homes are more common but both styles are very popular in this region.
Home amenities can include kitchens with slab granite counters, stainless steel appliances, and glass tile backsplashes. There are master suites with large sitting areas and double sings in the bathrooms. Many homes have attached casitas with their own entries. And the beautiful back yards often have sparkling pools and stunning scenery..
The Victoria Park facility nearby is situated on eight acres featuring picnic tables and grills. There is a volleyball court, tot lot, playground, and restroom facilities. This is a secluded area but the activities of downtown Palm Springs are just a few minutes away. The city is known for its hot springs, fine restaurants, and upscale shopping. Welcoming over a million visitors a year, this area depends on tourism. It has over 150 hotel accommodations with more than 8,000 rooms in the city. There are over 100 golf courses; the most of all the communities in the state.
Visitors enjoy seeing the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway. The tramway is the biggest in the world of its kind and takes people up via a route that rises 8,500 feet over the valley floor. At the top you’ll find a gift store, snack bar, and restaurant. The San Jacinto State Park also has camping grounds.
