When it comes to planning events, our new lifestyle manager, Danielle Young, has the know-how and passion to do it all – from intimate gatherings and wine tastings to all-out festivals and concerts. And Terramor is where she gets to exercise her creative talents to the benefit of the community.
What began as a hobby turned into a full-fledged career in 2014 when Danielle was offered a position at FirstService Residential to coordinate community events. And since then, her experience has grown to planning events throughout the Inland Empire for a diverse range of clients, including committees, clubs, local law enforcement and city officials.
But Terramor is where she really thrives. Danielle enjoys getting to know the residents so that she can best meet their lifestyle needs. She’s excited by “the resort lifestyle this community offers,” which she’s able to “make a reality through community events.” And it’s her appreciation and understanding of residents’ active and involved lives that informs every aspect of her event planning.
Danielle can’t wait to plan out Terramor’s upcoming 2020 social schedule, which she hopes residents “will love and have fun with.” She has plenty in store for the community, including creating more clubs and planning off-site excursions, monthly programs and new events.
When Danielle isn’t coordinating events, she enjoys raising her two-year-old son, Gavin, with her high school sweetheart, whom she’s been married to for five years, as well as camping in Glamis, California, and at the river with her family.
There’s no better time than summer to venture out on a day trip. And since school’s out, what better companions to have on your adventures than the kids or grandkids!
Head out to nearby Raging Waters for a day drenched in fun. There are plenty of rides, slides, waves, rivers, pools and attractions to explore at California’s largest water park.
Plan a day at Disneyland to experience all-new attractions, including the exhilarating Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, where you can pilot the Millennium Falcon on a daring mission.
Make your way to Tom’s Farms for wholesome family fun! Kids can enjoy train and pony rides, a petting zoo, a magic show, shooting gallery, carousel and a craft fair held every weekend from 8am to 5pm. Adults can jam out to free live music featuring some of Temescal Valley’s best local bands.
Want to stay closer to home? Then head to Butterfield Trail, which connects Terramor residents to parks and trails. You can also check out Vista Trail, Terramor’s newest trail near the preserved riparian area. Along the way, you and the kids or grandkids can read up on the local wildlife and take in amazing views of the Santa Ana Mountains.
The Veranda is the ideal place for a relaxing afternoon. Lounge on the sun deck or grill up a sizzling summer barbeque feast while the young ones splash around in the pool. It’s all there for you to enjoy.

When you take the time to learn about and explore Temescal Valley, you’ll find that it’s a place rooted in history. And there are plenty of landmarks to check out around town.
Two centuries ago in 1818, Leandro Serrano, a soldier at Mission San Luis Rey, raised livestock, planted orchards and vineyards and established adobe homes for himself and his family on what he called Rancho Temescal. The remnants of his two tanning vats used to make leather from cow hides have been restored and marked by a plaque.
As for the land where Serrano lived on, the Serrano Boulder stands where he constructed his first adobe in 1824—the first residence in Riverside County. And a plaque marks the site of his third adobe home, where his family lived until 1898.
Located on Temescal Canyon Road, the Old Temescal Road marker stands as another California historical landmark. This road played a major role in Southern California history as a major route for gold seekers, the military and postal service. And on this route was Butterfield Stage Station, where mail was delivered, horses changed and passengers given rest and a meal. The landmark for the station now lives at the Shops at Dos Lagos near the lakes.
