The Town of Queen Creek is primarily located in the southeast corner of Maricopa County with some overlap into Pinal County. The Town is within 10 minutes of Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport and 45 minutes of Sky Harbor International Airport. This small town is an oasis in the East Valley of the Phoenix metropolitan area and is a world apart from city life. Families on irrigated acre lots and in friendly subdivisions live among farmers and ranches, enjoying a rural lifestyle.
The Town of Queen Creek attracts thousands of visitors each year for its u-pick fruit and vegetable crops, working olive mill and seasonal festivals. Scenic views include the San Tan Mountains to the south and the Superstition Mountains to the northeast. San Tan Mountain Regional Park offers open space and recreational opportunities. As development occurs and funding allows, Queen Creek is acquiring and developing two major washes crossing the community as the foundation of a parks and trail system. Historical sites include the Old Main school building and the ruins of a Butterfield Stage stop.
