LOCAL EAST VALLEY COMMUNITY INFORMATION

Established in 1973, Dobson Ranch prides itself on being Mesa’s first planned community.

Since then, the neighborhood has become home to 15,000 residents in 5,000 custom and semi-custom homes, earning it a spot as one of Arizona’s largest planned communities. Don’t be fooled by the numbers, though; Dobson Ranch still maintains a certain family-friendly charm that today can only be found in small close-knit communities. Residents of Dobson Ranch enjoy access to 65 acres of common areas and facilities, most of which are included in the annual HOA fee of $554.40. Well worth it if you consider the endless fun that you and your family will have exploring the seven man-made lakes, three rec centers, tennis courts, playgrounds, and four pools (an essential during those Arizona summers), as well as an adjoining greenbelt system with numerous paths and trailways. For its younger residents, Dobson Ranch is conveniently located within just a few miles of Crismon Elementary School (grades PK-6), Washington Elementary School (grades K-6), Rhodes Junior High School (grades 7-8), and Dobson High School (grades 9-12).

The community surrounding Dobson Ranch offers a wealth of dining and entertainment options that are sure to appeal to the entire family. Downtown Mesa is delightfully charming with its antique stores, coffee shops, and restaurants (Republica Empanada, Alessia’s Ristorante Italiano, Desert Eagle Brewing Company, and Downtown Rendevous are just a few of the locals’ favorites). As a fairly recent addition to the city, Mesa Arts Center is an attraction in its own right, offering a variety of shows, concerts, classes, and events, as well as its own museum. And since Dobson Ranch sits right near the border of Tempe, you can enjoy all that your neighboring city has to offer as well, such as Tempe Beach Park, Arizona State Sun Devil football, splash pads, and the popular Mill Avenue District. Need to venture out of the neighborhood? No problem. Dobson Ranch is situated in a prime location, making commuting and traveling a breeze. Bordered by US60 to the north and the 101 to the west, you can be anywhere in the east valley in a matter of minutes. Want to go further? You’re in luck. Some of the closest popular destinations are only a few miles away and the furthest require no more than a day trip.
