During our visit was looking for a place to take photographs of the Phoenix landscape and found Papago Park. Was not disappointed- breathtaking, and absolutely free!!! A Must-see for all visitors, and you must stay for the sunset!

Papago Park is a 1500 acre park across Phoenix and Tempe, AZ. Hope on the rock is a landmark of the park. Easy to climb to top. The view is fantastic from top.

It has walking and bike trails. A lake with ducks that kids love because I know my 5 year old just enjoyed them. Plus grills and tables in case you would like to have a BBQ or party.
