A topographic park environment encourages exploratory play.
The 54-acre , $33 million Phase I includes sport courts, a lake amenity, amphitheater and event lawn, splash pad, and iconic playground.
An adventure playground takes advantage of the topography by incorporating vertical play opportunities, while also offering full accessibility to all play features.
The city is exploring public private partnerships on 40-acres of the site to attract a recreation center, shops, and restaurants to the site.
This new 272-acre regional park will ultimately become a $100 million regional park. The site capitalizes its former use for stormwater drainage to become a lake amenity. Full build-out is expected to cost $100 million and take place over 10 – 20 years. Dig Studio led the master planning and overall landscape design, as well as Phase I construction services. The park has recently won the Arizona Parks and Recreation Outstanding Facility Award as well as the Engineering News-Record Landscape/Urban Development Best Project Award.
