Phoenix Area Desert Preserves


The Phoenix area features many desert park preserves that provide great and convenient access to natural desert landscapes. Many of the parks are large enough to give the sense of escaping civilization even though you may be still in the city.  Others are on the outskirts of the city and bordering national forests where you truly have escaped civilization.


Mouse over the green areas and click to learn more about each of the preserves and recreation areas.
