Gold Canyon Reviews
I’ve lived in Gold Canyon for about 10 years two different houses and I have loved each neighborhood. However, the drive time is crazy! Entrada Del Oro is a very far commute from Apache Junction. I love Gold Canyon I just wish that it was closer.
Definitely a retirement town and not necessarily a good place for youth due its lack of opportunity and access to jobs. However, it is a charming and relaxing town that includes golf courses and local amenities, and is also within 20 minutes of bigger shopping centers and cities.
I would like to see it open more businesses and be more family friendly. I would like more families in the community and to be able to have it recognize that it is a family area and not just a winter visitor place to be. The community needs to focus on its full-time residents and not part-time residents. We need more stores, businesses, restaurants and community areas for families and children. The schools also need to improve and focus on improving their education and relations with the community.
