The La Estancia residential development was started in 2006 and is a beautiful neighborhood in the northeast section of Kanab, located in Tom’s Canyon.  In years past, Tom's Canyon was one of the settings for movies and television programs filmed in and around Kanab.   The neighborhood can easily be recognized by its waterwheel round-about entryway at the east end of 300 North Street. In Spanish, La Estancia means a farm, a ranch, or estate.

Today there are several dozen homes in La Estancia.  The homes are designed with the southwest high desert in mind - the home designs and their color scheme, as well as being a xeriscape community. Xeriscape (zir-u-skăpe) is a landscape concept which emphasizes water conservation, through the use of drought-resistant plants.  The Home Owners Association maintains the front yards of all homes.

There is a wonderful clubhouse with a kitchen, living room and den area with two television sets, plus a media center.  The exercise room has two treadmills, recumbent cycle machine, weights and other pieces of workout equipment.  The clubhouse has an indoor heated pool and Jacuzzi SPA open year-round, and an outdoor pool that is open in summer months. Next to the clubhouse is a picnic table and children’s playground area, an outdoor fire pit, a covered entertainment area, and an ample parking lot. 

La Estancia has one of the finest dog parks in the U.S.A.  It is large enough for many large dogs to run to their hearts content without any crowding.  It was the very first dog park to be officially “certified” by Best Friends Animal Society, Inc. This certification was done in 2007. The park is beautiful. Dogs just love it! By the way, the world famous Best Friends Animal Sanctuary is just 5 miles north of La Estancia (visitors are welcome).

The neighborhood includes retirees, young families, seasonal residents, and residents that are active in church and community.  The La Estancia residents are people who love Kanab and the beauty of the Vermillion cliffs, and nearby attractions such as Bryce, Zion, and Grand Canyon National Parks, Lake Powell, the Coral Pink Sand Dunes, and the Grand Staircase - Escalante National Monuments.  Folks often hike to see the nearby rock art - petroglyphs and pictographs.  They work hard to help each other and to keep our neighborhood clean and beautiful. We believe, of course, that La Estancia is one of the nicest neighborhoods anywhere in the world.
