It is bordered to the north and west by Tempe, to the north by Mesa, to the west by Phoenix, to the south by the Gila River Indian Community, and to the east by Gilbert. As of July 2014, the population was 254,276 according to the United States Census Bureau, however, according to the city's official website, Chandler's Planning Division estimated the population as of September 2012 being 239,610.

By 1900, he had acquired 18,000acre of land, and began drawing up plans for a townsite on what was then known as the Chandler Ranch. The townsite office opened on May 17, 1912, the same year that Chandler High School was established. The townsite was bounded by Galveston Street on the north, Frye Road on the on the south, Hartford Street on the west, & Hamilton Street on the east. By 1913, a town center had become established, featuring the Hotel San Marcos, the first golf resort in the state.
