Desert Estates is actually a group of subdivisions numbered from one to fourteen and sprinkled north and south of Cactus, east of 64th St. This collection of half and three-quarter acre lots were the first to be developed north of Cactus which at the time, was a two-lane road with so many dips that it was flooded and impassable with it rained.
The city widened Cactus in the late nineties and corrected the drainage of all north-south streets so that the area drains well today.
