MORRION RANCH LOCATION
Morrison Ranch is a 3,000-acre, mixed use, master planned community. Mixed use, meaning residential, retail, AND industrial use. There are 10 sections that make up Morrison Ranch. Even though it covers a lot of space, the community still has the look and feel of small-town living.
Homes in Morrison Ranch range from about 1,600 – 5,000 sq ft and offer up to 6 bedrooms. Lot sizes vary between about 5,000 sq feet all the way up an acre.
I’m not exaggerating when I say “tree lined streets. To date, there have been close to 12,000 trees planted in Morrison Ranch with about 10,000 more trees planned in the future.
Unlike a lot of communities in Arizona, the homes in Morrison Ranch have tons of character! You’ll find varying architectural styles including farmhouse, ranch and cottage style homes. Another thing that sets it apart from most Arizona communities is that Morrison Ranch allows a wide array of exterior colors, not just the desert colors.
There are 3 lakes that offer scenic views. These lakes are stocked with koi, white amur and tilapia fish and you can also find plenty of ducks and turtles hanging out. The 4 silos you see beyond the lake were formerly used to mix grain for the cows that were housed nearby. They now represent the agricultural roots of Morrison ranch.
Morrison Ranch offers more than 400 acres of green belts and about 25 parks and tot lots. This is where my son has had all of his soccer practices.
Quail Park at Morrison Ranch is a resort-style senior living facility that is located right on the lake. It offers independent and assisted living as well as memory care.
Morrison Ranch is located just minutes away from both Downtown Gilbert’s Heritage District and San Tan Village.
But there’s shopping and restaurants that’ll remind you of Main Street USA, nestled right inside of Morrison Ranch. Morrison Town Center offers 115 acres of shops, restaurants and services. There’s a grocery store you can ride your bike to, a restaurant with terrace views of the lake, and professional services like dry cleaning and medial care.
Not yet finished but is coming soon is The Business Center at Morrison Ranch. It’s a 280-acre business and employment center that is expected to bring more than 5,000 jobs to Gilbert.
