Our charming community is surrounded by mountain park lands, a regional lake and pristine, open Sonoran desert.
Our neighborhoods are clean, distinctive and unique, no wonder why nine out of 10 residents surveyed recommend Surprise as a place to live and start a business!
Our city of 115,000 people was just one square mile of farmland back in 1938 when Flora Mae Statler founded it. So why did she call us Surprise? According to Statler’s daughter Elizabeth Wusich Stoft, her mother once commented "she would be surprised if the town ever amounted to much." With our success, she would indeed be surprised and proud!
You can learn more about how this once small farming community transformed into Arizona’s 10th largest-city in “The City of Surprise: A History in Progress,” a 104-page book crammed with photos and anecdotes, plus an accompanying DVD documentary set.
