LITTER:

The Fourth of July is one of the busiest holidays at Lake Pleasant Regional Park. Along with a weekend of fun, comes an abundance of litter. There are multiple trash receptacles housed around the park. We would greatly appreciate it if you would either collect your litter and leave it in one of the many receptacles, or pack out what you pack in.

Leaving no trace is everyone's responsibility.
