Marana Arizona Real Estate

The Town of Marana is the entrance to the metropolitan Tucson Area. Situated at the Pinal-Pima County line on Interstate 10, and stretches 17 miles to the south to approximately Orange Grove Road. It is typically the first town folks encounter when coming in from the West towards Phoenix. Marana is a large town, with a small town feeling. Marana is over 120 square miles large, but is still has large amounts of agriculture.

Historically, Marana has been prime farmland for centuries. Indians grew crops because of the Brawley Wash intersected the Santa Cruz River (it used to flow year round) and provided a dependable supply of water. The Spanish came in around 1700 and started cattle ranching in the area.

Modern day Marana began around 1881 when the Santa Fe Pacific Railroad came through. The name Marana came from the rail workers having to chop through the thick mesquite thickets to lay track. The name ‘maraEa” is Spanish for thicket or jungle. The Town of Marana was officially incorporated in 1977 in an effort to protect water rights of the cotton farmers in the town. Throughout the years, Marana realized that in order to have healthy government it needed to have commercial areas and annexed south to Orange Grove road taking in the Continental Ranch area. In addition, Marana has annexed a bit to the east to take in the Dove Mountain area. There is an understanding between Marana and Oro Valley to meet someday around Shannon Road.

As far as housing opportunities, there are three main areas; Continental Ranch, Gladden Farms, and Dove Mountain. The Continental Ranch area consists of the communities of Continental Ranch, Continental Reserve and the age restricted retirement area of Sunflower. The Continental Reserve subdivision offers houses at a slightly higher price than Continental Ranch. The Gladden Farms area are subdivisions in the northern part of the town (Between Tangerine Road and Marana Road) and offer lower home prices. The Dove Mountain area is known for luxury homes and golf.

Golf is a major draw for the Town of Marana. Marana has three golf courses within the town boundaries. In addition there are over 68 acres of parks, six miles of finished trails and paths, the Tortolita Preserve and the Heritage Arena.

The Town of Marana has it's own police department. The Northwest Fire District primarily serves the Town of Marana with the exception of the shopping center on the Northeast corner of Ina and Thornydale, which falls into the Mountain Vista Fire District. Southwest Ambulance provides ambulance service within the boundaries of the Northwest Fire District.

Marana celebrates many community wide events. Some of which is the Marana Founders Day, Fourth of July Celebration, Spooktacular in October, and a Christmas Tree lighting in December.
