Community Profile for Litchfield Park, Arizona  Credit: Arizona Commerce Authority

 

The city of Litchfield Park, 16 miles west of downtown Phoenix in Maricopa County, is a planned residential community boasting a small-town atmosphere and casual lifestyle. It started in 1916 when Goodyear Tire and Rubber bought farm land to grow Egyptian long staple cotton used in tire cords. This project was developed by Paul Litchfield, a junior executive with Goodyear, for whom the company town was named in 1926. Litchfield Park was headquarters for Goodyear Farms, which had thousands of acres under cultivation. From 1931 to 1944, it also was the test site for Goodyear tires. In the 1960s, Litchfield Park designed a master plan for development, including several self-sufficient villages, which had a positive impact on the city’s development.

The Wigwam, a prestigious four diamond resort, recently went through a $15 million renovation and sits in the heart of this 3.3 square mile community. The resort was originally built for Goodyear executives visiting the farming operations. In 1929, the Wigwam opened to the public and soon became a fashionable and exclusive resort. Today, the resort offers fine dining, three golf courses, two swimming pools, the luxurious Red Door Spa and comfortable resort accommodations. The quaint downtown area next to the resort features a collection of locally owned and operated shops and restaurants. Litchfield Park has approved plans to expand the Wigwam Resort, including single-family and multi-family housing and commercial space, and reconfiguring three golf courses, including using a portion of one course for residential use. In 2014, the City approved rezoning of a 28-acre parcel on the northwest corner of Litchfield Road and Village Parkway to high-density residential for 167 units, some single-family, some condos and some patio homes.

White Tanks Regional Park, west of Litchfield Park, is named for natural rock water tanks once used by local Indians. Many unusual petroglyphs are found in the 26,000-acre park. Estrella Mountain Regional Park has 19,000 acres, with an 18-hole golf course, camping, horseback riding, hiking and picnic facilities. The Wildlife World Zoo, 4 miles northwest, provides a natural habitat for many endangered species. The NFL Arizona Cardinals, the NHL Phoenix Coyotes, Phoenix International Raceway, four Major League ball parks, the Phoenix Suns and Phoenix Mercury are all only a short drive away.

The city of Litchfield Park offers a range of community facilities including a library, swimming pool, three golf courses, and six parks with baseball and soccer fields. The library, parks and pools are open to the public. The city of Litchfield Park offers a range of community facilities open to the public, including a library, swimming pool, tennis and basketball courts, three golf courses, and seven parks with ball fields and playgrounds. An active community calendar features many award winning art festivals, concerts and cultural events throughout the year including a 4th of July celebration, spring and fall arts festivals, a Native American Arts Festival, and the annual Christmas in the Park. A newly completed pedestrian underpass incorporates elements of public art that celebrates the community and creates a safe connection to the existing pedestrian pathway system throughout the park.k.
