Peoria Arizona Horse Property For Sale

Peoria was first established in the late 1800’s when a man named William Murphy visited the area and envisioned bountiful farm land being grown and cultivated in the desert, yet this couldn’t be accomplished without water. Then in 1885 with the completion of the Arizona Canal this became a reality and Murphy ventured out East to spread the word and convinced people to settle in what is now Peoria. The first families to purchase land and come to help settle this area were from Peoria Illinois thus the name. Peoria today is a small close knit community with residents of all age groups.

Peoria is only about 13 miles northwest of Phoenix, close enough to have access to big city comforts yet far enough away to be quiet, relaxing and peaceful. This area which began as farm land has been transformed into a tranquil residential community. The Peoria Sports Complex is the shared home of spring training for the San Diego Padres and the Seattle Mariners. This gives baseball fans a great opportunity to see games in the off season. Many other professional sports venues are not far away.

Close-by Lake Pleasant is Arizonas second largest lake and is manmade. The Waddell Dam closed in the lake in 1928 to help with central Arizonas continuous lack of water and helped feed the various Canal Projects which supported farming in the area keeping the economy vibrant. The Lake is now a recreational haven for fishermen, campers, boaters and outdoor activities of all kinds with modern amenities and is often referred to as the Jewel of the Maricopa County Parks system.
