I am fortunate enough to work near here. This is a great place to go and chill out (well hypothetically speaking). The environment is conducive to a relaxing walk.

The hike to the hole in the rock is really easy and the view is great. The rocks formations are amazing. But way too many palms around the artificial lake.

We started our hike at the "Hole in the Rock", which is a nice fascinating rock and provides a good view of the city. We wandered off to other parts of the park and climbed a couple of other peaks. The hike was fairly easy...More

You'd never know that you were in the middle of Phoenix minutes from downtown. Beautiful scenery with lots of places to take photos. The zoo and the botanical gardens share the same land along with "Hole in the Rock".

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.

Whether you're just biding time before a flight or checking out the interesting rock formations, this park has parking, facilities, picnic tables, and views. We climbed up to the hole in the rock to watch the sunset, and then we took a walk around. NB:...More

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.
