Tolleson Community (85353)

This small but mighty city has much to be proud of. You won’t find a more unique city and I can say that because I call Tolleson home. It truly is a hidden gem and one where you can feel the pride of local residents. Tolleson sits in the West Valley of Phoenix and is just 10 minutes from Downtown Phoenix. Read the city’s Mission, Vision and Core values and you might want to call T-Town home. The culture in their downtown area AKA Paseo de Luces (Path to Art) is something special.


Tolleson serves as the west valley’s industrial employment center, housing over 20 Fortune 500 companies and employing more than 20,000 people. Remarkably, this translates to an impressive jobs-to-residents ratio. Despite its small size, Tolleson is strategically positioned. It lies 10 minutes south of Phoenix International Raceway and is surrounded by entertainment venues in Glendale, Peoria, Goodyear, and Phoenix.

Tolleson’s vision emphasizes retaining its family-oriented, friendly, small-town atmosphere while actively promoting positive, diverse growth that enhances the quality of life for all residents.

The restaurants are second to none. Try Roma 23 for a taste of Italian or a traditional Mexican dish at Irma’s. You can’t go wrong either by visiting Pete’s Fish and Chips. The Paseo de Luces is the entryway to a downtown feel that you won’t forget. You can hear music in the park and enjoy free Wifi. The downtown is the epicenter and heartbeat of the City. The residents can now enjoy a relaxing afternoon at the Parks and Recreation Center. This City does not disappoint. Take a walk early one evening and enjoy the murals and local art by its residents and students.

Whether you are a new homeowner or an aspiring entrepreneur, Tolleson invites you to be part of its story. Come for the sunsets, stay for the community and explore the possibilities of that small town feel with big opportunities.
