PARADISE VALLEY

PARADISE VALLEY 

Paradise Valley is one of the most exceptional communities anywhere, with a quality of life that is all but unmatched. There are several world class resorts that not only provide a source of revenue, but also provide outstanding amenities for the residents. Resident volunteerism began when the town was incorporated in 1961. Hundreds of residents have come forward to serve on our various boards, committees and commissions - the result of all the hard work of so many dedicated resident volunteers is a safe and bright future for Paradise Valley.

It should not be confused with Paradise Valley Village, an official municipal designation, in northeast Phoenix. For instance, Paradise Valley Community College, Paradise Valley High School, Paradise Valley Hospital, Paradise Valley Mall, and Paradise Valley Golf Course are all located several miles to the north of the town, in Phoenix. The town's name along with all the other various entities bearing the same name comes from the expansive area known as Paradise Valley, that spreads from north of the Phoenix mountains to Cave Creek & Carefree on the north and the McDowell Mountains to the east.

Residents attend schools in the Scottsdale Unified School District. There is a Paradise Valley Unified School District, and it is one of the largest in the state, though like many other institutions with the name Paradise Valley, it refers to the Phoenix village, and not to the town. There are also several private, charter and parochial schools located in the town.

Some areas of the Town have paved sidewalks for pedestrians, joggers and bicyclists. Homeowners are responsible for keeping the sidewalk abutting their property free and clear of debris and obstacles. Many of the Town's primary streets also have painted bicycle lanes.

There are four community parks within Paradise Valley:

  • Barry Goldwater Memorial: a small desert landscaped park dedicated to Barry Goldwater and statesman, a nine foot bronze statue by artist Joe Beeler stands in the native plant garden. Parking and entrance from Tatum Boulevard only. The park is free, and is open daily from sunrise to sunset.
  • Kiva Athletic Field: just south of Kiva Elementary School in Paradise Valley. The field is open weekends to anyone for playing sports and is used for youth sports from 4:00 to 9:00 p.m. Monday – Friday. Other events are subject to a special event permit filed at Kiva School.
  • McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park: is the most unique park of its kind in the country, located at the southeast corner of Scottsdale Road and Indian Bend Road. Take a ride on the Paradise and Pacific Railroad and antique carousel. The Model Railroad Building is a one-of-kind 10,000 square foot building showcasing the park's four model railroad clubs along with surrounding railroad displays and artifacts. Visit a variety of shops and museum or play in one of the spacious playgrounds, or just relax in the grass under a tree or in one of the park's picnic ramadas. The park is open 363 days per year (weather permitting), only closing on Thanksgiving and Christmas. Attraction hours vary.
  • Echo Canyon at Camelback Mountain: Parking lot and the 2 hiking trails are open from sunrise to sunset daily.

To many locals, Paradise Valley Country Club represents the ultimate country club experience in the Scottsdale – Phoenix locale. The club’s exacting membership requirements produce a long waiting list of prospective members, a very rare situation these days in the country club world. One former director of golf at the club probably described it best many years ago when he said, “It’s a bit of a contradiction; being so low-key and high-profile, all in the same breath.”

As you might guess, amenities at this club are elegant and extensive, including formal and casual dining, a cocktail lounge, hair salon, barber, swimming pool, grand ballroom, car wash and detailing service, tennis courts and fitness center. Golf and social memberships are offered and prospective members must be sponsored by existing members.

The club was formed in 1953 and Lawrence Hughes did the honors as course architect, with input from former tour pro Johnny Bulla, who remains an Arizona golf legend, and Keith Foster, whose specialty was bunkering.

The layout has undergone two renovations over the years under the direction of Geoffrey Cornish and Gary Panks, and course conditions are always immaculate. In the case of Paradise Valley Country Club, immaculate means manicuring the golf course with scissors – that statement is eye-witness testimony. The setting is picturesque with the 180-acre club surrounded by Camelback Mountain, Mummy Mountain and Marshmallow Hill. Paradise Valley rests comfortable atop the ladder of traditional country club experiences, and if you’re fortunate enough to land an invitation, graciously accept – you’ll be glad you did.
