Photo: Paradise Valley Backyard
Most of the houses here have their own pools. Sport Courts are not common. As you can see from this photo, even though Paradise Valley has mostly desert landscaping, people still have traditional back yards with grass. In our neighborhood, it is required that people have grass lawns in front.
I mentioned the lawsuit between neighbors a few days ago. There was a complaint about backyard activities in Paradise Valley not too long ago. Mike Tyson lives here and evidently his neighbors did not like the fact that he raised pigeons in his back yard. I don't think I would be going to his house to complain about anything.
Mohammed Ali also lives in Paradise Valley, as do lots of professional athletes. Major League baseball players especially like it here because their off season is our season of ideal weather, and about half of the Major League teams have Spring Training in the area, so they can live at home for an extra 6 weeks or so.
We are showing photos of the bottom of the Grand Canyon on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site this week.
