“Great place to see Locally”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

Local area to see in PhX / Tempe We did the whole park in under an two hours. This is where the locals go and it is FREE FREE. Excellent view view of Phx, catus and some desert samples.

“Beautiful gem on the border of Phoenix and Tempe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

Lovely for bicycle riding, hiking and picnics. Most people don't realize there's anything here but the zoo.

“Nice park in the desert”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

Great for mountain biking, hiking, a picnic (when it's not too hot) and even fishing. Yes! There is a lake/pond there were people were fishing. From on top of the buttes you can see the city unfold in front of you. Great photo opps.

“A huge scenic, urban park!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Its very surprising to find a huge park near downtown with magnificent rocks for climbing on and hiking trails. What makes this park so special is the fact that you can get such fantastic scenery but be so close to the city. Hole in the Rock is definitly a must at this park, you also get a good view of phoenix and the surrounding mountains from there. I had to leave to get back to southern Cal from here but with the time i spent here it was nice and well worth the stop! I will for sure return to this park!

“Nice, easy little hike to the "Hole". Nice view.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Nice, easy little hike to the "Hole". Nice view. Good for less mobile, elderly and children as it is an easy hike up the back. Lots of parking available and free.
