Queen Creek, a friendly small city in a desert oasis.
Queen Creek has a storied history going back to the turn of the century when the area was a stagecoach stop known for its lush olive groves. Today it is a thriving and innovative planned family-friendly community with a growing population of 33,649, and Queen Creek was named one of “America’s Friendliest Towns” by Forbes Magazine.
The city pays homage to its roots with the annual American Heritage Festival, the largest living history event in the American southwest, and stays culturally up to date with the highly-regarded Queen Creek Performing Arts Center. The local economy is anchored by well-established agricultural concerns including Schnepf Farms and the Queen Creek Olive Mill. The city is a mecca of parks and recreational opportunities, from the Horseshoe Park and Equestrian Center to the sporting fields and 5-acre fishing lake at Mansel Oasis Aquatic Park. Local education is Queen Creek’s strong suit, with access to six public school districts serving the area.
