The Property

​Canyon Sands occupies 33 acres and is located at the corner of Gene Autry Trail and East Palm Canyon Drive in the Melody Ranch neighborhood of Palm Springs. Melody Ranch was originally the name given by singing cowboy Gene Autry to the hotel he purchased in 1961, but now has grown to consist of that original hotel (now The Parker), the Seven Lakes Homeowners Association, the Oasis resort and the Canyon Sands Homeowners Association.
