The history of Tahquitz River Estates is the story of Palm Springs.
Palm Springs as well as the Coachella Valley have seen many changes through the years, and continue to renew and grow. Many yearly events have put the area on the map such as the Palm Springs International Film Festival, The White Party, Biker Weekend, Modernism Week, Tour de Palm Springs, PGA Golf Tournaments, Tennis events and the Coachella Music Festival, just to scratch the surface. Palm Springs is an intersection of history and the future. It has offerings for those who yearn for the nostalgia of years gone by, and for those who want to move with lightning speed to the future. The choice is yours, and each avenue will reveal delights. But with every turn make sure to take a moment and look around at this beautiful paradise and take in the peace and serenity of it all. And maybe you will feel the pure discovery of Palm Springs, all found in the magic of a desert oasis so many years ago.

The City of Palm Springs, in partnership with the Coachella Valley Association of Governments (CVAG), Caltrans, and the Federal Highway Administration, held a special informational Open House on Monday, Feb. 13, 2017, to inform Tahquitz River Estates Neighborhood residents about a proposed Bridge Replacement Project over the Tahquitz Creek Channel on South Palm Canyon Drive. The meeting was held at the Palm Springs Presbyterian Church located at 815 S. Camino Real. The new Palm Canyon/Sunny Dunes Bridge will replace the existing structure built in 1930 and reconstructed in 1956. The City's Engineering Department received $5 million in federal funding from Caltrans through the Highway Bridge Program to design and construct a replacement bridge, which will be widened to comply with current standards.
