Lake Communities in the Valley of the Sun
Yes, you are correct – we are talking about lake communities in the middle of the desert! While it may seem to be a contradiction, there are dozens of lake communities in the greater Phoenix area. While some of these lake communities offer nothing more than the lovely sight and sounds of a lake, others provide the residents a plethora of activities ranging from swimming and fishing, to boating and water skiing!
You can find lake communities throughout the entire valley. There are the communities of Val Vista Lakes, Playa del Rey Estates, Power Ranch and Greenfield Lakes in Gilbert. You will find Lakewood and Foothills Club West in Ahwatukee/Phoenix with beautiful South Mountain views. Chandler is home to several beautiful lake communities including Fulton Lakes, Ocotillo Lakes, Arden Park & Oakwood Hills. In the west valley there the communities of Garden Lakes and Crystal Gardens in Avondale. Scottsdale is home to Lakeside Villas, Mountainview Lake Estates, Scottsdale Ranch and McCormick Ranch.
If you love the idea of living in the desert while being surrounded by lakes and all they have to offer, you may want to discover what these lake communities have to offer. Dive in and take a look around!
