Few would have thought it possible to find a lake community with such close proximity to the mountains. Arrowhead Ranch in Glendale creates such an experience. This may come as a surprise for an area with humble beginnings as a citrus farm on approximately 5,000 acres that was conceived back in the late 70’s. In 2008, Arrowhead Ranch was voted “Best Neighborhood” in the Phoenix valley by readers of azcentral.com.
Arrowhead is ideally located at the foot of Hedgpeth hills and 1,185 acre Thunderbird Mountain Park to the north with the 101 loop to the south. The 101 loop offers the significant advantage of making the entire valley more accessible, and reduced commuting times. A little more than 4 miles to the northeast is Wet N’ Wild Water Park on Pinnacle Peak that looks increasing attractive as summer months approach. Continue traveling east less than half a mile and Adobe Dam Family Golf Center is on your left. Heading west then south on the 101 loop from Arrowhead Ranch, you’ll be pleased by the easy and quick access to Arrowhead Towne Center that is also know as Arrowhead Mall which offers over 170 stores and restaurants, less than 5 miles away. Also 5 miles to the south is Banner Thunderbird Hospital. Or John C. Lincoln Hospital Deer Valley is only 4 miles to the east. Golf enthusiats will enjoy Legend Gold Resort .
