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.

Last Desert Wash Hike for the season at White Tank Park
White Tank Mountains Regional Park
The desert washes are critical to the well being of the desert. They provide shelter for the inhabitants, channel storm runoff and reveal a cutaway view of the geology of the area. Join the staff on a walk through one of the Park’s more interesting washes. There is some rock hopping and climbing on this one and most of the walk is in sand so it can be a little too strenuous for small children and those with physical limitations. Plan accordingly. No dogs on this hike please. Meet near the Area 9 rest room at 9:00 am. Have plenty of water as it will be quite warm by the time we finish the hike.
