FIRE BAN INFORMATION
Effective
Tuesday, May 26, 2015 - Thursday, September 3, 2015 (Tentative)
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.

Pleasant Paddlers Program - Sunset & Full Moon Paddle - Lake Pleasant
Lake Pleasant Regional Park
Join us for a fun time paddling on Lake Pleasant during the full moon. We will meet at the end of Desert Tortoise Road, look for the "Full Moon Paddle" signs. Get there early to set up your kayak, canoe, or SUP, we will be leaving at 6:00PM to catch the sunset from the water. Bring some light sticks, your flashlight, water, a snack, and your life vest. YOU MUST WEAR YOUR LIFE VEST WHEN ON THE WATER DURING THIS PROGRAM. This paddle will be slower paced and more relaxing, exploring many coves.
