Tierrasanta is a lovely community with a fabulous location near major highways but surrounded by acres and acres of open space. The community has a branch library, jogging/biking trails, and a large recreational community center. The Tierra Times, a community service newspaper, has been published since 1971, and is delivered to all residents 13 times per year. Tierrasanta has a wonderful small community feel, but with plenty of grocery stores and restaurants right within the immediate area. It is a short distance to downtown and the airport and is a good community for those who want the suburban life, with quick access to downtown culture.
