Reason 4 - Outdoor Spaces 

Carmel Mountain Ranch - Sabre Springs Community Park is a family friendly park located on Sabre Springs Parkway. This park is fairly large and has many outdoor amenities including ample parking, water fountains, restrooms, and picnic spaces, all at no cost to local residents. In addition to picnic space there’s also three baseball fields and two playgrounds. One playground was designed for younger children, with the other tailored to older children with age appropriate climbing structures, slides, and swings.

Reason 5 - Community Spaces 

Due to the size of Sabre Springs the community committee joined that of Carmel Mountain Ranch to create one community committee.

In addition to sharing a community committee, Sabre Springs joined Carmel Mountain Ranch to create a joint community recreation center. The recreation center opened in 1997 and continues to provide residents of the neighboring communities a place to socialize and participate in sports and community events. The facilities at this location include an indoor gym, outdoor lit baseball and softball fields, a community room, children’s play area, and a large outdoor picnic area.

Sabre Springs does not have their own branch of the library system, but neighboring Carmel Mountain Ranch and Poway have library branches.
