Walter and Alethea Tolleson founded Tolleson in 1912 after moving to Arizona from South Carolina. In 1910 they purchased a 160-acre ranch at the intersections of 91st Ave and Van Buren Street. Mr. Tolleson reopened an old store that was once the first stagecoach stop in route to Yuma. This store became the central and most important part of the town's founding. The downtown area is still the nucleus of this community today.
Mr. Tolleson's aim was to promote the town as a farming community. He began selling lots for $50 a lot and the town began to grow. By the 1950's the city had become known as the "Vegetable Center of the World."
As time went on the city has shifted away from agriculture and has become the home of over 20 Fortune 500 companies that employ over 20,000 people. Tolleson is home to Pepsi, Fry's, SRP, QuikTrip, Sysco and more. Through the years Tolleson has become the west valley's industrial employment center.
Tolleson is not a big city at 6-square miles but it provides residents with amenities, shopping restaurants, and events:
Paseo de Luces
Recently the City of Tolleson updated their downtown area and added public art, wide pedestrian pathways, bicycle lanes, landscaping and social-style seating between 91st and 94th Avenues on Van Buren. They are calling the area Paseo de Luces, or Path of Light since the whole area is lit. The downtown also has piped-in music, free WIFI and the Central Plaza, a shaded gathering spot and venue for concerts.
Paseo de Arte
Paseo de Arte, meaning "Path of Art," features an amazing public art collection consisting of seven "urban trees," or statues. These sculptures were created with west valley high school students in conjunction with Gallary 37, a youth arts employment program administered by the West Valley Arts Council. The incredible art work symbolizes the city's past, present, and future.
Events and Celebrations
Every year the city hosts numerous events and holidays, such as the Latin Jazz and Mariachi Festival, the 4th of July Celebration, the Music Fest, the Whoopee Daze Festival and Luces de Navidad. Luces de Navidad means Christmas Lights in Spanish and this holiday celebration includes a carnival, musical acts, pictures with Santa Claus and a light parade.
Esther Angulo Community Center hosts some of the city's events, as well as other events, classes and programs.
Tolleson Veterans Park
The Tolleson Veterans Park is located at 86th Ave and Van Buren and hosts numerous of Tolleson's events. Not to mention it's a great place for residents to hang out and enjoy the outdoors.
