5 comments on “Litchfield Park”

Litchfield Park is a small community on the west side of Phoenix. It has a higher cost of living relative to the communities that surround it. The weather in summer is hot and dry, with temperatures reaching above 115 degrees. Litchfield Park is home to the Wigwam Resort and several large art shows throughout the year.

There is an atmosphere of trust between the residents, from a neighbor leaving a basket of home-grown lemons out for the taking to middle-schoolers walking to an ice cream shop after an early release day. The streets are remarkably safe; there are no tight lanes, dysfunctional stoplights, car crash hot spots, or anything of the sort. Litchfield Park also has a strong historic background and consistent community involvement. The notable Wigwam Resort has been around for over 90 years and provides a steady source of tourism and job opportunity.

The Litchfield Park Historical Society Museum, previously the home of WWII community volunteer Mary Brinton-Tubbs, provides an accessible snapshot of the area’s agricultural and residential history; but of course, you could always visit historical buildings like the Litchfield Train Station or St. Thomas Mission Church yourself. The Litchfield Park Festival of the Arts is held every fall and spring with craftsmen selling their unique artwork, food, and music. The marching band has also taken part in the Christmas in the Park parades, which bring the community together every holiday season.

Litchfield Park, Arizona, appears to be a standard desert suburb with stuccoed houses and palo verde trees lining the streets. Yet, compared to many cities, Litchfield Park feels like an oasis among unwelcoming or unremarkable hometowns. The layout of Litchfield Park is incredibly convenient and supports a wide range of age groups. There are a variety of supermarkets, medical clinics, gas stations, and general stores nearby. It is easy to get exercise by biking or walking to grab something you need.

There are several successful elementary, middle, and high schools in the area that have well-funded arts and academic programs. The suburbs have many parks, fields, and ball courts, and the Goodyear recreational sports are strongly integrated into the community.
