  • An often overlooked section of town
  • A new area of town that is soon to be developed

Queen Creek is a vibrant town in the southeast valley just south of mesa and east of Gilbert and Chandler.  I wasn’t born in Queen Creek, but I have lived in the area for over 23 years so that makes me somewhat of a local.

I remember driving to Mesa to get groceries when we first moved here and remember when Queen Creek got its first stop light! Comment below if you can name the intersection. 

The main roads that divide the town are Ellsworth Rd. that runs north and south and Ocotillo Rd. that runs east and west.  The town erected a clock and monument in the center of town at the corner of Ellsworth Loop and Ocotillo.

Northeast Queen Creek

NE: Starting in the Northeast quarter there are new communities like Madera, Madera West, Jorde Farms, Enclaves at Sonrisa, Light Sky Ranch, North Creek and Barney Farms. Walmart is already in this section of town, but we also have new restaurants and shops like Portillos, Whatburger, Drizzle Donuts, Black Rock Coffee and ALDI, The new Frontier Family Park will be opening early 2024 with a lake, 24 pickleball courts, volleyball, baseball/softball fields and basketball courts.  The new aquatic center at Frontier Park is also set to open near the end of 2024. 

Southeast Queen Creek

SE: The Southeast Quarter is home to Queen Creek High School on Ocotillo and the new Riggs High School off of Riggs Rd.  Schnepf Farms and the Olive Mill are also located in the section of town.  Cadeda by Toll Brothers, Harvest and Bellero Estates are some new commutes to check out in the area.  Fry Marketplace, Starbucks and Ike’s Sandwiches are some new business in this section.

Southwest Queen Creek

SW: The Southwest Quarter is the location for the New Pecan Lake Family Entertainment Center opening soon with Caldwells Country BBQ and Activities like a Flowrider, Go Cart Track and a PuttTek course.  The area is also home to the new FatCats, Seven Brothers, Dutch Bros, Backyard Taco, EOS fitness and Twisted Sugar.  New communities in this area are Bridle Ranch and Whitewing at Whisper Ranch (both by Toll Brothers) and Ellsworth Ranch.  Desert Mountain Park is in this section of town along with the Horseshoe Park and Equestrian Arena that hosts lots of events and Rodeos.

Northwest Queen Creek

NW: Lastly is the Northwest Quarter.  West Park Estates Merion Grove and Legado are in this section of town both near the Mansel Carter Oasis Park.  There has been a lot of commercial development in this section. We already have Target, Oreganos, Chick-fil-A, In-n-out, and Trader Joe’s to name a few, but we now have Torchy’s Tacos, and Costco. 

Box Canyon

One little known area that is soon to be developed is the Box Canyon area.  This 2000+ acre section of Queen Creek that backs up to the San Tan Mountain Park was annexed years ago and builders in the area have plans to build a luxury master planned resort golf community in this beautiful canyon. 

I love our little town and I am excited to see what is in store next.  With everything in town I don’t need to drive to Mesa for groceries, in fact I rarely need to leave.

If you would like more information about any of the communities I have mentioned or just general questions about the community.  Feel free to leave a comment or message me!!  I love to share all things Queen Creek, so follow along to learn more about QC.
