FIRE BAN INFORMATION
Effective
Tuesday, May 27, 2014 through Friday, August 29, 2014
Maricopa County's regional parks will initiate the annual fire ban. This includes banning the use of all
campfire, fire pits and charcoal grills; however, it is still acceptable to use gas/propane grills in designated areas such as the ramada areas, semi-developed and developed camping sites, and along the shoreline at Lake Pleasant Regional Park.
If the parks do not receive ample rain during the monsoon season, the Maricopa County Parks and Recreation Department
may extend the fire ban to protect the parks resources and ensure visitor safety. To learn more, click here.

Wet n' Wild Hike and Splash - Lake Pleasant
Lake Pleasant Regional Park
Let's get Wet n' Wild on this hike! Come ready to get wet at this very popular fun activity. We first fit life vest, then we hike down a 3/4 mile trail to the shoreline, put on our life vest and splash in the water to cool us down! You may borrow life vest from the Ranger or you can bring your own. The hike back up is not too bad, now that we are wet. Bring water and wear water shoes or old sneakers that can get wet (no flip flops). You can also come on the hike and stay dry, but drink lots of water. Hats and sunscreen are good to have also. There are bathrooms at the trailhead and the hike ends at 11AM. This is a Wet n' Wild hike so every family will have a chance at a four pack of Wet n' Wild tickets at the end of the hike. So come get Wet n' Wild and maybe lucky too!
