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.

Hike and Splash - Lake Pleasant
Lake Pleasant Regional Park
Come ready to get wet and wild! Please bring water, sunscreen, a snack, and wear water shoes that will stay on your feet (no flip flops). Old sneakers that you do not mind getting wet and muddy are OK too. This program is a fun family hike and swim, which is very well attended in the summer months. Here is what to expect: we first fit everyone for a life vest (loaner PFDs are available at the trailhead or you may bring your own). Then we hike down to the water, put on our life vest, and enjoy a dip in the water to cool us down. Once we are all wet and happy, we will hike back up to the parking lot. The hike is about 1/2 mile each way and the program last about two hours.
