Papago Park, Phoenix: 3 reviews and 12 photos
The park has many activities for all ages, but especially for children. Its main feature must be the zoo, but we liked the Desert Botanical garden very much, as a must see. It is about 50 wonderful acres of 500+ varieties of cactus and desert plants. I hoped to hike some of the hills, but did not have time to do so. They looked relatively easy and good views of the central area around there.
The park has a lot of shelters/ramadas to picnic and enjoy the day under shade. Three small lakes are also in the park for recreation enjoyment.
Directions: Galvin Pkwy at Van Buren-right at the crest of north Phoenix and axis of main highways.
