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.
Along with a weekend of fun, comes an abundance of litter. To help control litter at Lake Pleasant Regional Park, has teamed up with the Maricopa County Department of Transportation (MCDOT), and Maricopa County Waste Resources and Recycling (WRR) Department for an Anti-Litter Campaign to ask park-goers to pick-up and throw away their own trash at the county’s most-visited park.
As part of the partnership, all vehicles entering the park during the Fourth of July period will receive an orange trash bag, along with educational information about the impact of littering. And, WRR will provide additional dumpsters to give recreationists more options for trash disposal.
We would greatly appreciate it if you would either collect your litter and leave it in one of the many receptacles, and pack out what you pack in. As a way to thank park visitors for helping to keep the park clean, we will be running a Keep the Lake Pleasant Promotion from noon on Friday, June 29 through 11:59 pm on Wednesday, July 4th.
