We have lived in Shamrock Estates for the past 7 years and have loved every minute of it. So many things about Shamrock Estates make us wonder if we will ever move. Shamrock Estates is one of those communities that make you feel like you can confide in all of your neighbors. Gilbert, AZ. in general seems this way, but Shamrock Estates has something different. We are located at Higley and Ocotillo roads just Southeast of the 202 freeway and the San Tan Village Mall and Market Place. We have the gorgeous San Tan Mountain range just South of us and are only 10 minutes from the San Tan Regional Park where you can hike, bike, and horseback ride. I personally love to mountain bike and I even got my wife Michele to shred some dirt.
Shamrock Estates has multiple parks, basketball courts, ramada's, barbeques's, volleyball courts, miles of walking paths, and a K-6 school. There are multiple parks in Shamrock Estates and 2 main parks, but one stands out above the rest and is referred to as Rockwell Park. This park is giant and comes equipped with basketball and volleyball courts, 2 jungle gyms, several ramada's, and barbeque's. The park is actually off the street of Rockwell, hence the name. Although this park may trump others in size, there are still many others peppered throughout the community that are quite large. The community school is CTA Freedom, and it is a top tier school ranked 10 out of 10 by Great Schools and is part of the amazing Chandler Unified School District. Our kids have attended this school for going on 6 years now and we can honestly say that the school is second to none. Our kids are all 1 year ahead in math, reading, and other subjects. It really is quite amazing what they accomplish in one year at this school. We will say however, that this school is not for the faint of heart, it takes a lot of hard work on your students part and on the parents. It is both challenging but rewarding.
In the Spring, Fall, and Winter times you will see multiple families out and about on bikes and at the parks. Our community is very family oriented and our kids have friends in all parts of the community. A sense of safety can be found here and we know this first hand. Years ago, our youngest son learned to climb over our view fence at 20 months old. He escaped not once but twice and both times a neighbor brought him home. We were relieved to know that we have so many great neighbors that actually took the time to find out where he lived. We since have installed alarms and locks at heights he could not reach and luckily it has not happened again. When my grandmother was living with us her little dog got loose and was lost for a couple of days. He was soon returned by someone in our community that had been diligently looking for it's owner. It is a huge comfort to know that our neighbors have our backs.
Shamrock Estates is close to shopping, dining, activities, freeway access, and churches. Built in 2005 with more than 800 homes in our community, there are plenty of options to choose from. We have homes ranging in sizes from about 1,500 sq. ft. to over 5,ooo. Our homes sit on an average of 9,000 square foot lots. We all love our neighbors, but that doesn't mean we have to be right on top of them. I challenge anyone that is looking for the perfect community to find one that has the space between each home that this community does. It's virtually non-existent these days and that is one of the many reasons that Shamrock Estates is so unique and desirable.
