Situated 12-miles south of Phoenix, Gilbert is a sprawling community that (believe it or not) started as a Mormon farming colony. Today, it’s host to the annual Global Village Festival. This popular yearly draw has a Parade of Nations and international marketplace, costume demonstrations, and music from around the globe, all designed to celebrate the rich diversity that’s now a core aspect of Gilbert.
One of Gilbert’s many attractions is the school system and options. Arizona is a school-of-choice state, already, so residents can attend a school even if they’re not in the boundary lines. But for Gilbert residents, the local public school is often highly rated by GreatSchools.com. Most of the area schools got at least a 7 out of 10 ranking, which is much higher than the national and state average. There are also over a dozen private and charter schools to choose from, making Gilbert a popular choice for young families who are looking to give their kids the best education possible.
As far as housing, the options are plentiful. Finley Farms is a family favorite. Mostly made up of Arizona-style ranch homes with desert landscape style lawns, families with young kids will find that they’re never far from a school or well-maintained park and playground.
Agritopia is one of Gilbert’s most unique neighborhoods boasting a model that the residents hope will catch on. This master-planned community is centered around a suburban farm that’s maintained and shared by the residents. Fruits, vegetables, and even livestock are grown and cared for by the community, right in the middle of the suburbs!
Seville is an upscale option that lures a lot of young professionals and upper-middle-class families who are looking for a family-friendly feel with a touch of class. Residents here enjoy access to the Seville Country Club and an Olympic-size pool at the local community center.
Believe us, these three neighborhoods are just the tip of the iceberg! From clean condos and neat rowhomes to multi-million-dollar mansions, Gilbert has something from everyone.
Of course, we can’t forget the amenities. The Central Trail System is a 135-mile system of paths and walkways that are always bustling with bikers, joggers, and walkers. Many residents even commute using this popular trail system. A well-kept dog park, enormous skate park, soccer fields, golf courses, shopping malls, and professional buildings can all be found scattered amongst the well-kept neighborhoods and communities.
