The City of Mesa is in the East Valley portion of the Phoenix Metropolitan Area. Part of Maricopa County, it is bounded by:
Mesa is the third-largest city in Arizona, the 35th-largest city in the U.S., the largest suburban city by population in the nation, and the largest that's not a county seat. Its history dates back approximately 2,000 years when the Hohokam people occupied the area and built the original system of canals. Before their disappearance, they had turned the Sonoran Desert into an agricultural oasis. Some of the hundreds of miles of canals are still being used today.
In March 1877, Mormon pioneer Daniel Webster Jones and Henry Clay Rogers left St. George, Utah. They had been asked by the Mormons officials to establish a settlement in Arizona. Situated on the north side of present day Mesa, the settlement was originally known as Fort Utah. It was later renamed Jonesville and Lehi. Around the same time, the First Mesa Company also arrived from Utah and Idaho. Led by Charles Crimson, Charles I. Robson, Francis Martin Pomeroy and George Warren Sirrine, they established a settlement on the mesa in the area, used some of the former Hohokam canals and dug more irrigation canals.
On July 17, 1878, Mesa City was registered as a townsite. In 1879, the Second Mesa Company settled west of the First Mesa Company. The settlement was known as Alma and Stringtown. The city was incorporated in 1883.
In 1895, Dr. A. J. Chandler –the founder of the city of Chandler – widened the Mesa Canal to enable enough flow to build a power plant. The plant was purchased by the city in 1917. The land for the Falcon Field and William Field was also acquired by mayor George Nicholas Goodman. As military personnel and industrial companies moved into the area, the population began to grow. As of the 2019 census, the city has a population of 518,012 people.
The City of Mesa is home to many parks and recreation for one to enjoy. Residents and visitors of the area can choose to spend time at state parks, amusement parks, or museums. Some of the recreational spaces Mesa offers are:
