“A close to the city recreation area.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

We discovered this park by accident, going left instead of right, but finished up spending several hours wandering the trails and hiking the relatively small hills. We thought the trails were not that clearly marked but we were still able to wander and spot some interesting animals and plants in the area. As for the Hole in the Rock, it was on the other side of the road after we had searched in the double hill area. Great place for exercising.
A food day's fun.

“Close to home.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

This is a great park to hike if you don't want to drive miles to get out of the city for just a few hours. It is also very close to the botanical gardens and the zoo, both of which are well worth a visit.

“Hole in the Rock”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

The park is actually quite large. We had to ask a local for the location of the Hole in the Rock. What a different place! Even tho it was pretty hot (they were having record highs when we were there!), we still enjoyed the picnic area and the hike to the hole. Well maintained and clean.

“Great place to walk or run”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Nice park in the middle of Phoenix! Paved and dirt trails are scattered among the buttes that dot the area. Visit hole in the rock for a nice view of downtown and the surrounding lakes!
