What’s New in PQ?

‘Tis the season of festive inspiration as the lights go up on Christmas Card Lane and snow comes to Hilltop Community Park for Winter Wonderland and the gift drive of the 6th Annual Cookies & Cocoa with Santa. The spirit of giving sets the mood for new memories to be made on the Rancho. Check out our community calendar to stay current for all things PQ that enhance our lives:

With the new year comes monumental changes. We have a new monthly meeting place as of January 2020 in partnership with the Rancho Peñasquitos Public Library. With the closing of the Hotel Karlan on Dec. 31, 2019, we say goodbye to all the wonderful memories in the Ballroom. Our last community event to be held there will be Cookies & Cocoa with Santa, and we welcome everyone to attend this momentous occasion celebrating the past and looking forward to the future.
