Park Projects

Since the transition of the Hassayampa River Preserve from The Nature Conservancy in April 2017, our team has been busy making updates to the property. Here are a couple of things you may notice on your next visit:

  • hired a full-time interpretive ranger to offer a wide variety of programs;
  • made cosmetic repairs such as fresh paint and new flooring;
  • structural repairs such as building patchwork, electrical system upgrades, improvements to the roofing, and a new air-conditioning unit which may be less noticeable but are very important in maintaining a quality visitor experience;
  • parking area upgrades;
  • fuels reduction around the perimeter of the buildings to reduce the threat of wildfire;
  • new office furniture, computers, and a point of sale system for fee collection were installed;
  • reconstruction of the Visitor Center’s back porch;
  • installation of new trail signs and trail reroutes;
  • improvements to the picnic area, including construction of a bench wall to increase the functionality of the space by making it a two-tiered area for presentations and school group usage;
  • addition of a new front desk in the Visitor Center, and display shelving in the retail center; and
  • we're in the process of installing a new ADA-accessible restroom building adjacent to the visitor parking lot.
