DISCOVER ARIZONA CITY
Arizona City was established over 50 years ago in 1959 when the Arizona City Development Corporation
decided to develop two and a half acres of land. We are located in the Santa Cruz Valley, close to the
Sawtooth Mountains conveniently located at the midpoint between Phoenix and Tucson in what’s referred
to as the Golden Corridor of Pinal County. Arizona City is located right on the I-10 and I-8 split allowing for
easy access to both major highways for commuting and traveling. Cattle ranching and agriculture are both
abundant in the area and the lands around Arizona City include both industrial and commercially zoned
areas perfect for future businesses to grab.
Today the community has a year round population of approximately 5,000 residents, however during the
winter months Arizona City’s population easily doubles as seasonal residents return to enjoy the weather
and small town atmosphere. Today Arizona City is an unincorporated part of Pinal County although
throughout the years there have been many attempts to incorporate none so far have succeeded.
Arizona City maintains a small town feel while providing many city amenities such as a public library, a
variety of restaurants, residential private lake, elementary/middle school, Boys &
Girls Club, Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts, day care, post office, Moose Lodge, a variety of convenience stores,
churches of many denominations, Sheriff Sub-station, Chamber of Commerce, Fire Department,
and more. The post office serves as your mail delivery system. Each resident who owns or rents a home
gets their post office box for free because mail does not get delivered directly to the homes in Arizona City.
Residents may access their post office box 24 hours a day however big packages that do not fit inside
boxes must be picked up during Post Office hours during the day. Many different streets and blocks come
together to form Neighborhood Watch and Clean-Up Groups to keep our Arizona City community clean and
safe. Any services not found inside Arizona City can easily be found in close neighboring communities of
Casa Grande, Eloy, Coolidge & Florence. Arizona City is bordered by the Sells/Tohono O’odham
Reservation to the South, the Ak-Chin Indian Community to the West and the Gila River Indian Community
to the Northwest. Each Native American Community has its scenic attractions and annual events open to
the general public.
If you’re the outdoors type Arizona City offers bird watching, hiking, rock climbing, star gazing,
amazing weather throughout most of the year and more. Our lightly used roads offer the perfect opportunity
for taking a nice leisurely walk, pet stroll or bike ride.
Whether you are single, building a family or retired and wanting to relax all you need can be found
