Well groomed Walkways of LQ

LQ for short. La Quinta means "country house" in Spanish, better known as a villa. Quinta can also refer to a vegetable garden. Quinta can stand for 5, or the fifth. This luxury neighborhood has grown in population by 70% in the past 2 decades, so it may be busier and more crowded than it was in 2011.
