One of the cool parks in Phoenix that gives the visitor an idea of what the landscape looked like before the town of Phoenix was there.

The buttes at Papago Park are fun to hike around in the morning or afternoon. There are some places where you can do short repels too. Ample parking and easy into and out of the area.

A small park with a kids play area. Not sure if fishing is allowed or not. A great picnic area with bathroom facilities available. The highlight is the Hole in the Rock.

Well-located and very pretty, with ample parking and reasonable walking trails and picnic areas. We spent a few hours here with kids and teens, and everyone liked it.

Nice walking/hiking park in the heart of the city. Hike up to the hole in the rock, very easy climb and stairs on the back side to make it easier. Anyone can make the climb. Washrooms seemed to be lacking or we just missed them,...More
