About Garfield

The Garfield Historical District is located just south of Interstate 10 and west of State Route 51 in central Phoenix. It is one of the oldest neighborhoods in the Phoenix metro area and was settled by the hard-working early residents of Phoenix in the 1900s. Homes are small and lots are around 7,000 square feet. The City of Phoenix has designated this district as part of its Reinvent Phx, a public-private program that encourages and enables neighborhood redevelopment activities.

Getting Around Garfield

Around Garfield

Most of the restored homes in this historic district lie near its northern boundary just north and south of Roosevelt Street. The redevelopment area stretches a few miles south to Van Buren and east-west boundaries go from 16th Street to 7th. The majority of single-family homes in the district are two-bedroom units, followed by one-bedrooms and lastly, three. These homes pre-date garages, which is the reason so many have them placed off alleys, where they serve as home offices or rentals. Mid-size apartment complexes are in the neighborhood, as well as more contemporary condo and townhome properties.

Roosevelt Row (RoRo) is within minutes of the Garfield Historic District and features some of the most innovative eateries in the Valley. Stepping away from RoRo lands you in the heart of Garfield where there's abundant authentic Mexican food. Diners who want a change can choose from nearby restaurants serving American, Chinese, Vietnamese, Italian, and Indian food.

You'll still see a diverse population and compact single-story homes lining the streets. The home styles are predominantly ranch, with Craftsman and Tudor styles sprinkled in between. Most homes have yards with tall trees and manicured lawns.

Downtown Phoenix and RoRo have many options when it comes to concert venues, bars, and professional sports arenas. First Friday is a program the City of Phoenix started in order to attract people from all over to enjoy Friday nights downtown, and it's been a resounding success. Merchants and restaurateurs in the RoRo area keep their doors open late at night all week during their summer Vampire Hours to lure locals out of their air-conditioned homes after the sun sets.

This neighborhood is close to Interstate 10 and the SR 51, giving quick access to all the city has to offer, whether it's an afternoon at a distant mall or hiking and cycling at a mountain preserve. The Garfield District lies on the southern edge of downtown Phoenix, with easy access to all it offers for arts, entertainment, and dining. Margaret T. Hance and Encanto Parks are a quick drive away with family activities and recreation of all kinds. The light rail system is close by and connects residents to nearby cities.
