GVR membership requires a deed restriction in perpetuity on a property within the established boundaries of Green Valley Recreation. Because the membership is a deed restriction in perpetuity on the property, cancellation of membership is not an option. GVR Membership passes from owner to owner when a property sells. Membership is not age restricted.

How to Become a Member

  1. Purchase a GVR deed restricted home, OR
  2. Purchase a home within GVR established boundaries that is not GVR deed restricted. Once the home has closed and recorded contact Membership at (520) 625-3440. You will then meet with a Membership Specialist to sign an agreement to deed restrict the property, pay the Initial Fee, Transfer Fee, and pro-rated dues and obtain your GVR Membership Card.
  • If you are not sure the property is within GVR established boundaries, please call the Membership Department at (520) 625-3440.
  • Once your home has closed and recorded, please visit one of our Membership Specialists located in the Administrative Offices to obtain your GVR Member ID Card.
If you have any questions, please contact the Membership department at or call (520) 625-3440.
