The Highlands at Cimarron East community is located in Sparks, Nevada, a city of about 100,000 residents adjacent to Reno, the Biggest Little City in the World. Sparks, known as Rail City for its role in Southern Pacific Railroad history, today serves as a major warehousing and light industry hub for Northern Nevada. The Reno-Sparks metropolitan area has a population of about 425,000.

Our community is nestled in the eastern, high desert foothills of the Pah Rah Mountains. Looking to the west across the Spanish Springs Valley, community residents have an unparalleled view of the Sierra Nevada, famous for the 1849 Gold Rush, the Donner Party and arguably the most beautiful lake in the world, Lake Tahoe. Directly below our community and easily accessible to residents is the championship-class Red Hawk Golf Resort, which offers both public and members-only courses as well as dining and recreational facilities. Eagle Canyon Park, a modern sports complex with the world's largest outdoor Astroturf installation, lies about a mile away and provides a venue for local, regional, and national competitions in baseball, softball and soccer.
Our community is composed of 480 stucco-clad, one- and two-level houses ranging in size from 2300 to 3800 square feet, with lot sizes up to half an acre. The beautifully designed houses on large lots, the wide streets, and the large common areas give residents a sense of space and vastness accentuated by spectacular views of Mt. Rose.
We consider ourselves an active community populated by a wide range of age groups with varied interests. Children of all ages are welcome! The Homeowners Association, run by the HOA Board, provides direction and oversight ensuring compliance with the development's CC&Rs and state laws and serves as the engine for enhancing the community's appeal and addressing residents' concerns. Assisting in this effort are three standing committees staffed by volunteers from the community : Architectural Control, Landscaping and Social.
