What a cool experience!

You have to do this. Wear proper footwear. It isn't super easy but it isn't too tough to climb. It's a great view in a lovely park. Yes, it's a do not miss thing to do in Phoenix.

perfect park for the family, young or old. It is easy and fun at the same time. The shape of the mountains is very unique and fun. You can see the big Hares running , it also have some snakes.

We went to hike to the hole in the rock formation, and found there are 2 sides of the park (divided by the street). The hole in the rock was pretty interesting and the view was nice. It was a very easy hike.

Not very large but cute. I wouldn't spend that much time here. You can literally walk around the whole thing in like 2 seconds.

Really enjoy this park. I go in the mornings and it is really peaceful. Very clean park. My only disappointment is the damage done by people to the hole in the rock

I used to live right by Papago Park, the little mountains aren't like anything I've ever seen before! The park is clean and well maintained. Be sure to not climb up anything you can't get down from. I like to take visiting family and guests here, they are always blown away by it!

after the zoo, why not go and enjoy an afternoon by a lake in the shade? If you have the energy and will power with the kids, go and hike up to hole in the rock and enjoy the views.

Papago park was designated as an Indian reservation fo the Maricopa and Pima Indian Tribes in 1879. It is now an urban park located within the cities of Phoenix and Tempe, Arizona. It's notable for the many distinctive red sandstone formations: Hole In-The-Rock is the park's most famous landmark and I think it's quite impressive and alone worth a trip... More

Many trails to hike depending on the length you want and the height. Bring lots of water and take your time.
