Although technically this is part of Maryvale, this area is different from what people's perception of Maryvale is. To most of us Maryvale is really around 37th-67th street and Camelback road, this is 103rd ave and Camelback past the 101 freeway, I'd consider it more to be part of either Glendale or Avondale.

I drove around and the near by old homes are prettier than 2 years ago probably due to investors buying and fixing homes in that area, dust devil park is a nice addition too.

Villa de Paz has lots of potential specially due to the Golf courses.

No this neighborhood is not safe! Nothing but crime, drugs, vandels, you name it , that's where it is. I lived & grew up in that place, my kids grew up there. It doesn't help that the cop's are crooked too. Maryvale sucks! Maryvale is the south phoenix now. You couldn't pay me to live in maryvale! Gun shot's & the ghetto bird are an everyday thing there. If you move there you better know how to bob & weave.

Thank you for your responses! I think I am going to stick with Surprise or Avondale. I grew up around Sunrise Mountain High school ( 83rd and deer valley) which is ridiculously safe and now my parents live in Surprise near Marley Park. I'm thinking this is not such a good area if I am concerned with safety- quite a bit of crime.

I live in Surprise and its waaayyyy better then Maryvale. We used to live in that neighborhood and we moved out as soon as our lease was up. Someone stole both my kids bikes, we found them in someones yard and rang the bell and the mother of the child that stole the bike started beating the kid with a belt right in front of us!! We felt bad for the kid, but, we got our kids bikes back.

City of Phoenix police department has a web site with statistics for each zip code is printed. My perception of a safe neighborhood might not agree with yours, so it is best to check these sites yourself.
