LITCHFIELD PARK, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -- Have you made a trip to Litchfield Park lately?

Most Valley residents know about the Wigwam Golf Resort, but did you know there is a giant rose farm?

Here are six things to know about Litchfield Park: 

- The city, 20 miles west of Phoenix was incorporated in 1987 and is only 3.3 square miles.

- Litchfield Park is known for it's citrus and palm trees, as you can see when you visit the area.

- The town was created when Goodyear Tires sent their executive Paul Litchfield out west to buy land for cotton. He loved the area and it was eventually named after him.

- The Wigwam was originally called the Organization House, built to house Goodyear Tire executives in Akron, Ohio.

- There are more than 6 million rose bushes growing at the Francis Rose Farm. The farm ships the bushes to California, Texas, New Jersey and stores like Home Depot sell them to the public.

- There is a "Lego-Like" house that benefits the Special Olympics. Check out what the home looks like here.
