Downtown Phoenix is alive and well, and it's only getting better. With a metropolitan mixture of arts and culture, nightlife, boutiques, restaurants, and sporting events, Downtown Phoenix is blossoming into the true epicenter of the Valley.
For the past 20 years, Phoenix consistently ranked as one of the fastest growing economies of all metro areas in the United States. New ideas and businesses take root in the core of the city. Healthcare, technology, and the arts are all here.
People are flocking downtown. Young and affluent, experienced and adventurous, there's a home for everyone here.
A population growth of at least two million residents is expected over the next two decades. To prepare for that population growth and following the national trend of urbanization, an enormous amount of infrastructure is being implemented in the city's core.
Located in the Central Arts District and adjacent to the 32 acre Margaret T. Hance Park, Portland on the Park condenses the downtown luxuries Phoenicians love into a deliberate, thought-out project that builds on the best parts of the city.
Downtown Phoenix is taking flight.
An oasis in the city, the Margaret T. Hance Park is Phoenix's answer to Hyde Park in London and Central Park in New York City. Here, people take it easy under the shade of long-established trees. A favorite of joggers, dog-owners, and picnickers, the park connects communities and offers a soothing counterpoint to the energy and bright lights of downtown Phoenix.
With pedestrian access to the Phoenix Central Library and the Roosevelt Row Art District, the park is also home to the Japanese Friendship Garden, the Irish Cultural Center, and a host of other amenities. From a game of Frisbee to attending a music festival to Phoenix's St. Patrick's Day celebration: whatever you like to do outside, you can do it here.
Great parks make a great city. Both make for a great home.
Phoenix and Himeji participate in business, governmental, cultural and educational exchanges that promote international goodwill and understanding. The Garden is the shared cultural vision of the cities of Phoenix and Himeji.
The Japanese Friendship Garden of Phoenix, named Ro Ho En is an authentic 3.5 acre Japanese Stroll Garden with tea garden and tea house. This tranquil and beautiful setting features more than 1,500 tons of hand-picked rock, stone footbridges, lanterns and more than 50 varieties of plants. As you stroll the path, you will enjoy flowing streams, a 12-foot waterfall, and a Koi pond with over 300 colorful Koi fish.

In the 1920's, one of the most desirable addresses for the affluent was on Portland Street's Boulevard Park. Now in the center of Phoenix's Central Arts District and home to Portland on the Park, the historic Boulevard Park is the only remaining spot in the city that provides an instant connection between Phoenix's vibrant past and dynamic future. Communities are built on strong, time-tested roots like these.
Today's Central Arts District boasts a feast of arts and cultural experiences, including: The Phoenix Art Museum, The Heard Museum, Phoenix Theatre Company, Phoenix Center for the Arts, and Roosevelt Row (named by the NY Times as one of the nation's largest self-guided art walks each month).Boutiques, live music, and a variety of galleries are all here.
To indulge in a different palette, the award-winning restaurants and cafés in and around the Central Arts District will tempt your taste buds. Start the week at nationally-acclaimed breakfast joints, have the best pizza in America for lunch, and enjoy an evening out at the ethnic restaurant of your choice. Food Truck Fridays are the perfect, carefree cap to your workweek, and an excellent way to start the weekend. From there, you can find fresh food at the farmer's market each Saturday morning and brunch in the art district each Sunday.
