5/26/2015 - Extended due to dry conditions. Please check back after Labor Day for updates.
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.

Come one, come all to the fun 11th Annual Lake Pleasant Easter Egg Hunt! Free with paid park entry ($6 per vehicle). Don't be late, we start right at 9AM sharp!!!! It takes over two hours to hide over 2000 candy filled eggs, but it takes 300 kids only about 10 minutes to clean them all up! It is a lot of fun for the whole family. There will be some special eggs that can be redeemed for kid's prizes!!! The hunt is open for children 12 years old and under. There will be three seperate areas for Children 5 and under, children ages 6 - 8, and for the 9 - 12 aged kids. Bring a basket or bag for your candy eggs. Look for the "Easter Egg Hunt" signs, that will lead you to the Road Runner Campground play area, once inside the park.
