An unincorporated community in the northwest reaches of the Phoenix major metropolitan area, Waddell is often considered part of it’s rapidly growing neighboring town of Surprise. Even though Waddell predates Surprise by about three years, Surprise has grown much faster and so has absorbed much of the area surrounding Waddell in the thoughts and speech of people in the area, if not necessarily geographically.
The influence of the name can still be seen, however, in the name of Waddell Road, the main arterial street that runs through Surprise, as well as the New Waddell Dam at Lake Pleasant. The Waddell area itself can actually trace it’s roots all the way back to a citrus tree planted during the Great Depression by a local farmer named Truman on the corner of Waddell Road and Cotton Lane, which remained standing until February 2009.
