Neighborhood spotlight: Central Tucson's Broadmoor

The midtown Broadmoor (Broadway Village) neighborhood is one of central Tucson's older neighborhoods and encompasses one-quarter of a square mile.

Bordered to the north by Broadway Boulevard, Broadmoor is conveniently located close to downtown, the University of Arizona, Reid Park and the El Con Center. The Arroyo Chico, an urban stream designed for flood control, runs through the center of the neighborhood.

The Broadmoor subdivision was created in 1944 on land formerly used as a golf course. Broadway Village Shopping Center and various retail establishments buffer the northern boundary of the neighborhood from road noise and busy traffic.

Built in 2008, Malvern Plaza is Broadmoor's pocket park and is located at the corner of East Malvern Street and East Arroyo Chico. There are picnic tables and a Little Free Library. Many neighborhood and community events take place in the plaza.

There are two walking paths in the neighborhood. One runs along the Arroyo Chico and another - Treat Walkway- runs North-South due to a utility easement.

Center city Tucson and I-10 access is only 3 miles from Broadmoor. Tucson International Airport to the south is about 8 miles or 15 minutes from Broadmoor.

Homes in Broadmoor mostly range from two to four bedrooms on small, urban lots. Most Broadmoor homes were built between 1945 to 1955 and range in size from 1,254 square feet to more than 3,300 square feet. Many of the homes have undergone updating and renovating.

In 2018, seventeen homes sold in Broadmoor for sales prices ranging from $230,000 to $370,000. The average sales price for the same period is $275,750.

Schools that serve Broadmoor are Robison and Robins Elementary; Mansfield, Hollinger (K-8) and Magee Middle; and Tucson High schools. Robison Elementary is at the southern end of the neighborhood and is within walking distance for many residents.
