 Events for All Parks 
<September 2015>

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. To learn more, click here.

Please feel free to download the brochures below and either take them to the park with you, forward them to a friend or use them in the classroom. Click on the links below to drop down to the sections.
