We used this park three or four times when resting from longer mountain trails. People were friendly, trail easy to follow, clean and well maintained. Very nice walk. Also, check out Hole in The Rock across the street. If you google Papago park you can...More

Papago Park is home to the zoo, hiking, picnic and other activities. I particularly enjoy climbing up the red rock formations and looking out over the valley through a large opening in the rock.....great photo spot! Climb is reasonably easy if you are a healthy...More

Great place for hikes and fishing, however on weekends it gets very crowded very fast. There can be loud music blaring from the birthday parties in the ramadas which destroys the ambiance of the place. Either go early or during the weekdays to avoid this....More

Had some time to kill in the area waiting for friends. Decided that I would walk around for awhile. Nice grounds with plenty of things to view and appreciate.

You can walk the paths, see waterfowl at the small lake, or climb "Hole in the Rock." Unfortunately, it is littered and crowded, taking away from its allure. If you have the time, drive east to the Superstitions or stay local at South Mountain Park.

This is a free park, short easy hike and worth a trip. It’s slightly different from a couple others I’ve hit while I’ve been here. It’s about 3 miles round trip - bring your water!! Watch for dog poop here -

This is a quick walk/hike, and easy to do with young kids. We really only spent 30 minutes there as we were passing through to head to other plans of the day. Next time we may make a day of the park. I am very...More
