Maricopa County Parks and Recreation

Fourth of July

During the Fourth of July week, we will make every effort to keep you updated on traffic, and park information. However, with park visitors arriving non-stop, and limited resources, we may be unable to post updates regularly on social media. To make it easier for you to find information, we have included widgets from additional agencies helping us keep park visitors safe and informed this weekend.
