It is in the same area as the Desert Botanical Gardens and the Zoo. So plan an extra hour and walk up to see the Hole in the Rock.

Very nice ressort a little bit outside of Phoenix. It's a place, you must visit, you are travelling to Phoenix. Nature, the look at the city of Phoenix and the silence in the wind. I love it.

A nice park close to Sky Harbor Airport. We spent the afternoon at Papago before an evening flight out of Phoenix. Nice short hike to see Hole in the Rock and a beautiful pond area where we sat and relaxed and read -- soaking up the last of the sunshine before flying home to snow!

I took my dog to the dog park while my 12 and 10 year olds went to the playground. Later afternoon we set out to climb and hike, and then sat around the lake. PLUS- I could see my kids from the dog park and the opposite side of the lake (very small lake- no swimming). It's a beautiful park,... More

Had a lot of fun walking up to the hole in the rock. Awesome view. Took a stroll down by the park and enjoyed seeing how families in Phoenix hang out on a sunny afternoon. Loved it.

We found it amazing that a 10 minute drive from strip malls, cement, and cars surrounding us in Phoenix is a wonderful oasis of natural beauty! We hiked around the park's trails and enjoyed the spenders of nature. It helped that it was early spring, so the weather was warm and the wild flowers were just starting to bloom. The... More

We went to Papago park on a super hot afternoon- it seemed the rest of phoenix was there too. Trails start out well-marked but as you get higher, there are no markings. A bit of a disappointment and frustrating. The community fishing area and the ducks were a nice respite from the heat. Bring lots of water, good hiking shoes... More
