Joe Mann Park and Rose Garden

Joe Mann Park is operated by the City of Palm Desert,which rents this land from PDCCA. The Memorial Rose Garden next to the pool gate area is also maintained by the City of Palm Desert. This Rose Garden area was built and maintained for many years by the Garden Club of Palm Desert, a group of local residents who pruned the roses and maintained the memorial sign. Contact our PDCCA office if you would like to place a name on the memorial sign in the Rose Garden.

Facts about your Association

Q. Why do I have to pay an assessment each year?
A. At the time you purchased your home, your escrow provided documents that showed your home is part of a homeowner association, and is encumbered by the Association's CC&R's and Bylaws.
   
Q. What is the money used for?
A. The money is used for the maintenance and up keep of the association properties at 77-800 California Drive in Palm Desert.  These properties include a recreation hall and meeting rooms, as well as two swimming pools and a spa.  There also is an office that is maintained for association activities and transactions.
   
Q. Who can use the association facilities?
A. The pools are available to homeowners, their families, and guests at no charge.  The recreation hall, meeting rooms, and patio are available to homeowners for functions involving homeowner, spouse, children and grandchildren at no charge once a year.  (Exception is if you want staff to set up and clean up for your function at an additional cost).  The homeowner must be in attendance.  There is a reservation/damage deposit required to reserve a time and date.
