Papago park is great for easy outdoors

If you have little kids to get out hiking this is the place to go. Nice easy hikes and you can even fool around on the hole in the rock rock.

Wonderful place to visit. We walked/hiked up the backside of the "Rock." Great view out the hole and a good place for photos! A few steep steps up the back, but not too bad for the 'young at heart.'

My wife and daughter and I had some time to kill when we got to Phoenix so we went for a little hike in Papago Park. The rock formations are really cool.

Not quite what I expected after reading the reviews. If you're there to hike around there are NO clear maps of trails there supposedly are trails on the southeast side of the park past another golf course. Try to find it! The area around hole in the Rock is small , confusing, and full of people daring to get hurt... More

We wanted a place for our old teens to burn off some energy and climb around taking pictures. This park has every thing we wanted. Short trails, rocks to climb, restroom facilities and nice views. Looks like a great place to walk your dogs also based on the number of people doing just that very thing. We enjoyed our time... More

Nice, well kept park. Enjoyed the short hike to hole in the wall. If you get a chance head west on McDowell Rd through the Papago Mountains for a amazing city view. Try to catch it at sunset.

Big park with zoo, picnic areas, lagoon, climbing experiences. In spite of its size, you can easily make this a short stop if you have an hour or two to kill before you fly out of Sky Harbor. We made the short, reasonably easy climb to Hole in the Rock for beautiful views of the desert, mountains, downtown, airport. Lovely... More

The ponds create a really neat atmosphere. There are lots of places to sit and eat. We were there in October so it wasn't hot but the eating places are covered to protect you from the heat. We went for lunch in the middle of the week and it was almost deserted. The children really enjoyed the birds. There were... More

An easy walk around the back to Hole in the Rock, with a nice park with ponds and palm trees and cacti... free to boot ! and restrooms at the parking lot.
