Desert Botanical Garden (Phoenix) by An Pham
Close to Casa Grande and Phoenix, Sacaton is a gateway to ultimate luxury and stellar attractions, from state-of-art gaming to lush green fairways and swanky accommodations. But Sacaton not only has access to the best modern conveniences, it also has a deep-rooted history.
The capital of the Gila River Indian Community, the tribe’s cultural and historical roots run deep in the lands surrounding Sacaton. Ancestors of the Gila River Indians settled in the area around 300 B.C., and the residents continue to live on this land that has brought the tribe prosperity for centuries.
The earliest inhabitants harnessed the power of the nearby Gila River, transforming the desert into rich farmland. Recognizing the land’s healthy spirit, the people invested in it, constructing canals and establishing trade routes. Today, the community continues to invest in the area, having established luxury accommodations and attractions that embrace their history and allow visitors the chance to enjoy the lively spirit of this desert oasis.Visit City Site
