McCormick Ranch

In Scottsdale's McCormick Ranch along the Camelback WalkToday McCormick Ranch contains 3,116 total acres.  It was the first and largest master planned community in the city.  1,120 acres were sold off to later become Scottsdale Ranch.

Development began with infrastructure and amenities. The amenities had a dual purpose by providing aesthetics and flood control.  They included two championship 18-hole golf courses, more than 25 miles of bicycle paths, public tennis courts, 130 acres of man-made lakes, two of which can be used for sailing and several that are stocked with fish. “The Camelback Walk”, a continuous open space that runs under major roads and through the parks, alongside lakes and streams, is the major spine of the overall Ranch development. The first phase of its development was of the infrastructure and three first class resorts.   Phase 2 saw the addition of single family homes, condominiums and patio homes.  There are a total of 57 subdivisions on the Ranch. While there is no new construction going on, there is a very noticeable renaissance with the rental apartments undergoing condo conversions, the older homes being replaced and the patio and town homes being remodeled and modernized taking full advantage of their prime location.The Palms Golf Course in Scottsdale's McCormick Ranch
