At first glance, seeing the city of Surprise, you “would be surprised if the town ever amounted to much.” But as you get to know the history of the town, you appreciate what she can offer. Sitting in the middle between Sun City and Sun City West, Surprise is a part of the retirement communities that has seen rapid growth these past few decades.

When it all Began

The city was founded by Mrs. Flora Mae Statler in 1938. She was the wife of Real Estate Mogul and State Legislator Mr. Homer C. Ludden. In the earlier days of the city’s history there were only a few homes and a gas station. The city then saw a massive surge of expansion of people calling Surprise home. At first, it was under 50,000 people in 2000, but then it grew to over 100,000 in 2010.

As with all growth spurts, businesses follow suit. One such business is the Aquatics Center and the Maricopa County Northwest Regional Library. There’s also the development of a Prasada Shopping Center. Finally, there’s Surprise Stadium; it’s a well-known location to see the Kansas City Royals and the Texas Rangers (not to be confused with the Law Enforcement, the Texas Rangers Division) inside Surprise Stadium. They also have a facility called the Surprise Tennis and Racquet Complex that has been the host of several major tennis events.
