Peralta Regional Park in Gold Canyon

During this perfect weather Arizona, we were off exploring some back roads of Superstition Mountain when we fell upon Peralta Regional Park in Gold Canyon.

Paqua Park at Lake Pleasant Regional Park

Paqua Park at Lake Pleasant Regional Park. Summer in Arizona usually means 6 months out of the year with temperatures over 100. It can be brutal so we love to find activities that get us outdoors near the water to stay cool. This weekend we had the opportunity to check out Paqua Park, a 5,000-square-foot inflatable obstacle course, located at the Scorpion Bay Marina on the west side of the lake. Think jumbo bouncy houses and slides directly on the water with a touch of “Wipeout” mixed in. My preteen and teens took the course for a spin and had an absolute blast!

McDowell Mountain Regional Park: A Maricopa County Park

McDowell Mountain Regional Park: A Maricopa County Park. During spring break last month, we had a great time exploring Mcdowell Mountain Regional Park outside Fountain Hills, Arizona. This park is part of Maricopa County Regional Parks and has many exciting activities to offer. We paid only $7 for our vehicle to enter the park and had an enjoyable day.

Lake Pleasant Regional Park: A Maricopa County Park

Lake Pleasant Regional Park is a Maricopa County Park and located in Morristown, Arizona, about an hour north of Phoenix. Lake Pleasant is a “man-made lake” or an artificial reservoir nestled in the Sonoran Desert Wilderness. It has over 23,000 acres of water, aka it’s a fairly large lake that offers boating, swimming, cliff jumping, kayaking, fishing, and even scuba diving!

Gilbert Regional Park

Today, my son and I visited the grand opening of the new Gilbert Regional Park. This park includes a large, multi-area playground and a huge splash pad, all surrounded by ramadas that are perfect for parties and gatherings. With the beautiful upcoming Arizona fall and winter just around the corner, a new park is absolutely perfect! This is an excellent addition to the East Valley (especially those who live in East Mesa, Gilbert, or Queen Creek), but if you are more centrally located, it is still worth the drive.
