Fodor's Review

An amalgam of hilly desert terrain, streams, and lagoons, this park has picnic ramadas (shaded, open-air shelters), a golf course, a playground, hiking and biking trails, and even largemouth bass and trout fishing. (An urban fishing license is required for anglers age 15 and over. Visit www.azgfd.gov for more information.) The hike up to landmark Hole-in-the-Rock —a natural observatory used by the native Hohokam to devise a calendar system—is steep and

rocky, and a much easier climb up than down. Governor Hunt's Tomb, the white pyramid at the top of Ramada 16, commemorates the former Arizona leader and provides a lovely view.
