Could anyone please tell me the crime stats for Litchfield Park? I forgot to ask about this in my previous question. Is this a good place to raise children? Any other information about the town would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Crime would be low on my list of concerns about Litchfield Park. Crime in most of PHX area is property crime - auto theft and home burglaries. Violent crime is very low in the outlying cities. Prop crime is hard to avoid but it is always least in established neighborhoods where people know each other and most in new neighborhoods where there is a lot of moving in going on and people don't know who belongs there and who doesn't. LP is small and pretty much established. There are some new subdivisions that went in over the past couple years - they are priced at the higher end of homes here, but don't have the character of "old" LP. LP started as a home away from home for wealtthy Goodyear Tire execs who were in town on business. Litchfield is the name of a Goodyear exec as I recall and Goodyear (the city) gets its name from the tire company. Goodyear had huge cotton farms here in WWII to make cotton cords for tires. LP was made to look more like an eastern town with lawns and tree-lined streets. The older part is walled and it is very different from most of Phoenix behind the wall. They have a resort there, the Wigwam which is a landmark place and has 4/5 star rating. There's several churches near LP and Sunday brunch (at the Wigwam) is a trip! LP a very nice place if you can afford it.

BTW: I like where I live - Estrella Mountain Ranch - more than LP. Much nicer natural setting and more to do. Look at estrellamountainranch.com
