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.

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. Good for less mobile, elderly and children as it is an easy hike up the back. Lots of parking available and free.
