Fall at Tracy Hills is a special time. To celebrate the season, the community gathered for a day of fun at our Tracy Hills Fall Fest in early October.
Residents of every age enjoyed quality time with neighbors and all kinds of autumn favorites, from pumpkin painting to classic games such as sack races and egg toss, to the very popular donut bar that offered delicious eats for the whole family.
Our Welcome Center, with its beautiful wide-open green spaces and big blue skies, was the perfect location for our fall event. Residents took advantage of the weather and spent the day outside, whether that was eating their favorite kind of treat, taking pics for their Instagram or just hanging out with friends.
If you missed our fall event, keep your eyes peeled on social media—we’re planning some festive events, including our annual Winter Event on December 1 and the Residents’ Holiday Home-Decorating Contest (get your lights and imaginations ready!).

What do you get when you cross a movie about an adventurous teenager who sails out on a daring mission with a warm summer evening at Tracy Hills? Movie night under the stars!
In late June, residents of all ages were treated to a screening of the popular Walt Disney Animation Studios film Moana at the Tracy Hills Welcome Center. Relaxing on blankets and in chairs, attendees watched the movie while enjoying freshly popped, delicious popcorn—a prerequisite for any film.
The spacious lawn at the Welcome Center was not only the perfect setting to enjoy snacks and watch a fun, engaging movie, but kids also had a blast roaming and playing before and after the showing.
Don’t fret if you missed out: we plan on having more great events soon!

Kick Off the Summer at Tracy Hills’ Second Annual Homeowner BBQ
It’s summertime and the living is easy. That means longer days, warmer nights and time to break out the grill!
We hosted our second annual summer kickoff event on June 11 with a good old-fashioned cookout for Tracy Hills residents. All the elements you’d expect from a neighborhood picnic were there. Smokin’ Yankees BBQ provided delicious fare, cold beverages were served, live music by the Sugar Bear Band on the lawn kept things rockin’ and rollin’ and kids got to make crafts just in time for Father’s Day.
It was a fun way to welcome summer and the perfect June Tracy Hills day.
If you missed it, not to worry. We have plans for more events in the fall and for the upcoming holidays, just like last year!

The City of Tracy Parks & Recreation Department recently held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate three of Tracy Hills’ new city parks in phase one: Tracy Hills, Greymont and Starcross. Attended by city officials and residents of Tracy and Tracy Hills, the ceremony included a ribbon cutting, light refreshments and presentations by Mayor Nancy Young, Parks & Recreation Department Director Brian MacDonald and Tracy Hills’ Vice President of Entitlement John Palmer.
All three parks, while unique in their own ways, include large open lawn areas for group sports practice, shade structures, picnic tables, barbecues and restrooms. The parks offer residents of Tracy Hills and the surrounding community places to gather, play, exercise and, above all, have fun.
Tracy Hills Park
Entering the community off Corral Hollow Road, the first park you’ll come to is Tracy Hills Park. It features fun farm-themed playground equipment, including a tractor play structure. This park is the place where residents come together the most—especially starting in 2021 when spending time together outside became the focus of most gatherings. Some of the most popular activities at Tracy Hills Park include flag football for kids, regularly scheduled food trucks and an annual Easter egg hunt.
Greymont Park, located off Tracy Hills Drive, includes sports-themed playground equipment, walking paths and a large turf area for organized sports practice, including soccer, football and baseball.
Off the second roundabout along the AKT trail and within the Vantage neighborhood sits Starcross Park. The park features great views of the city and includes a very popular basketball court and nature-themed play equipment.
Did you know that once completed, Tracy Hills will include over 80 acres of parks? Green spaces are important, and we’re proud to provide places for people to come together and enjoy the outdoors. In fact, each neighborhood at Tracy Hills was planned to be within walking distance to a park, including a trail system within the community that links all the parks!

There are houses—and then there are bounce houses. The Welcome Center was a busy place in November and that included a Bounce House Homeowner Event.
Tracy Hills residents got the chance to kick off their shoes and (literally!) jump right into the fun with their neighbors in bounce houses fit for residents of many ages.
All that laughing, jumping and bouncing made people hungry too. Residents enjoyed delicious, sweet treats, including cupcakes and cookies, then went back to bouncing.
It was a fun day of play and enjoyed by more than 200 residents. Thank you for participating. We look forward to more Bounce House Homeowner Events!
Residents of Tracy Hills got into the holiday spirit during December thanks to our second annual holiday home-decorating contest.
Many joined in, turning their homes into winter wonderlands for the chance to win some amazing prizes while also delivering good holiday cheer to our community.
Residents let their creativity shine and brought their holiday visions to life through their festively decorated homes. Homes submitted to the contest were judged based on best holiday spirit, with The Home Depot® gift cards given to the top three. It was a hard decision by our judges – so many great decorations from all of you!
And the winners are…
First Place: $500 The Home Depot® Gift Card
Second Place: $250 The Home Depot® Gift Card
Third Place: $100 The Home Depot® Gift Card
Thank you to everyone who broke out the festive decorations to bring holiday cheer to our neighborhoods. You helped make our whole community light up!
A gift for Tracy Hills residents, our holiday event in early December was a great success, in no small part to a special appearance by the big man himself: Santa Claus.
The holly jolly good time included festive photo ops with Santa and delicious hot cocoa to help keep residents warm.
The vibe was cheerful and helped kick off the holiday season here at Tracy Hills. We hope you had as much fun as we did!
In late August, we celebrated the opening of Fire Station 95, the first fire station built by the South San Joaquin County Fire Authority (SSJCFA) in the surrounding area in 20 years—and it’s right here at Tracy Hills!
This fresh facility features the latest equipment and technology, allowing firefighters to provide fire protection and advanced life support paramedic services not only to our community but also all South Tracy residents.
With fun for the whole family, the grand opening event kicked off with a parade of Fire Station 95’s emergency vehicles cruising along Tracy Hills Drive and was followed by a ribbon-cutting ceremony with City of Tracy Mayor Nancy Young. The eventful afternoon was topped off with public guided tours of the brand new facility and a delicious lunch from Smokin’ Yankee’s BBQ.
It was the perfect way to send off summer with a celebration—and it really brought out the firetruck-loving kid in everyone. Now as fall quickly approaches, be sure to be on the lookout for more exciting events to fill your calendar!
