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.

Perseids Meteor Shower Hike - San Tan
San Tan Mountain Regional Park
It’s fun to identify stars, planets, moon phases, and the space station, but sometimes its best to just go for a walk or throw out a blanket, lay on your backs, and gaze upon the night sky together. No explaining, no identifying…just looking up at the stars and experiencing the sense of awe. Tonight we will go for an easy stroll on the Stargazer Loop. We will make stops along the way to point out the Perseids Meteors and other stellar objects. Bring water. Wear closed-toed shoes. Meet at the Flag Pole. “If people sat outside and looked at the stars each night, I bet they’d live a lot differently” -Bill Watterson
