Comanche Park located in McCormick Ranch in Scottsdale has a lot of green grass for playing sports, a new playground, a fitness circuit, and plenty of lush green trees to make it a frequent destination. The old shade pine trees and walking path, along with it being close by make this a common place to stop and burn energy.

Playground Remodel in 2021

Before After This playground was remodeled in March 2021 and it’s a big improvement for sure. The previous playground had a rusty slide and a couple of swings. The remodel includes a fun climbing structure with leaves for stairs, a rain catcher, a double slide, lots of swings and play panels. There are two toddler and two big kid swings. I personally love that the panels have a little education on them, especially the animal tracks theme.  We definitely miss the excavator but love the new playground so much, it’s worth losing a digger!


There is a small shaded drop in ramada directly next to the playground for a quick snack. And picnic tables under the giant shade trees just to the west of the playground. Picnic tables are scattered throughout the park offering shade depending on the time of day.


This 11 acre park features a drop in ramada (benches only), picnic benches, a lighted basketball court, lighted tennis courts, basketball court an exercise course, and newly remodeled playground.
