Queen Creek AZ Community Information

Queen Creek, in Maricopa County's southeast corner, is only a 45-minute drive from Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport, but a world apart from city life. Families on irrigated acre lots and in friendly subdivisions live among farmers and ranches, enjoying a rural lifestyle. Centuries ago, the Hohokam found the fertile areas along creeks and washes at the foot of the San Tan Mountains ideal for farming, as did turn-of-the-century settlers. The town is comprised of 26 square miles. The Town General Plan contains 31,282 acres, with 19.7 percent set aside for commercial or
industrial uses.
