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.

Celebrate Earth Day on the Maricopa Trail
Parks & Recreation
When complete, the Maricopa Trail will be approximately 375-miles long, winding around the Valley connecting all of Maricopa County’s regional parks. Currently, the Maricopa Trail is nearly fifty percent built and a few of the completed segments need the help of some awesome volunteers to clean-up and clear the pathway of rocks and tripping hazards.

This will be a fun, three-hour combined group event being celebrated by five great organizations with outstanding records of working to help to maintain and preserve the natural environment and recreational trails: Conservation Alliance of Central Arizona, Maricopa County’s Parks and Recreation Department, the Maricopa Trail + Park Foundation, Arizona Forward, and the Arizona Trail Association.

There is approximately three-miles of trail work so please wear appropriate clothing, closed toe shoes, hats, sun screen, and work gloves. If you have a rake, shovel, or McLeod, please bring it. We will also have some trail tools on site for you to use. We encourage youth involvement, and pets on leashes are welcome. The work site is off the Carefree Highway just west of I-17, near the Ben Avery Shooting Range.
