History

Sun City is a master-planned community for senior citizens over age 55. The four-square mile residential community has two public golf courses, two recreation centers with tennis courts and swimming pools, and a commercial center of small shops for resident consumers.

Originally build in 1960, it was one of four "Sun Cities" designed by Del Webb to later created retirement communities in Arizona, Nevada and Florida in the 1970s and '80s. The Del Webb company opened Sun City Palm Desert, California east of Palm Springs in 1991.

Another development boom arrived in the late 1980s and 1990s with Menifee as another master-planned community on the southeast edge of Sun City, and as of 2005, the one-square-mile area of homes, condos, schools, retail shops, golf courses and tennis courts still grows.

Menifee Valley Medical Center is a General Acute Care Hospital in Sun City with Basic Emergency Services as of 2005.[1]
