Just outside of Goodyear, Arizona at the entrance to the master-planned community of Estrella, you can feel the hustle and bustle of the city melting away as you cross the Gila River and wind your way up Estrella Parkway. Just before you arrive in the community, you’ll notice a curious spiral tower just off the road to your right.
Adorned with grey stone and rust-red metal, the fifty-foot-tall Star Tower is a beautiful sight set next to a bubbling waterfall. Visitors who climb its many steps to the top are rewarded with a spectacular view of the surrounding Estrella Mountain landscape and the distinct flora of the Sonoran Desert, a view that is particularly stunning during one of our famous Arizona sunsets. While the tower is striking during the day, the real showstopper happens at night, when hundreds of bright stars light up the structure’s surface.
The Estrella community built Star Tower with the desire to create a landmark at the entrance to its community that celebrates the unique beauty of the Arizona skies.
