South Phoenix, also known as the South Mountain Village, South Mountain District, is a neighborhood in Phoenix, Arizona.
It has the boundaries of 27th Avenue to the west, 48th Street (Phoenix/Tempe Border) to the east, the Rio Salado (Salt River) to the north and South Mountain Park to the south.
Major arterial east-west streets include Broadway Road, Southern Avenue, and Baseline Road, all of which connect South Phoenix with the suburb of Tempe.
There are numerous sites of historic and natural interest within the boundaries of South Phoenix, including Mystery Castle, Heard Scout Pueblo, the San Francisco Chapel, South Mountain Park, and several historic buildings at the entrance of the park called "Scorpion Gulch."
Since the late 1990s (and especially since 2002), the area has undergone rapid development, especially along the Baseline corridor, where acres of citrus groves and flower fields have been turned into housing developments and commercial properties.
I am headed to SoPhx to visit the Mystery Castle.
