Buckeye

Located about thirty to forty minutes west of downtown Phoenix and west of Goodyear. Less of a suburb feel and more of an old west, small town atmosphere. Buckeye celebrates its history with Countryfest in the Fall, Pioneer Days in the Spring, Electric Light Parade, and the Holiday Arts and Crafts Boutique. Also you can catch exciting shows and events at the Helzapoppin’ Rodeo.
Enjoy great views and sunsets at the White Tanks Mountain Regional Park. The park offers all kinds of outdoor activities including overnight camping. Buckeye Town Park has a picnic area, a skate park, volleyball, and a great Olympic size pool with a water slide and other water features to help cool you off in the summer. In addition you can find the Buckeye Historical and Archaeological Museum with an original pottery collection at Town Park.
