Beautiful area of ponds, pinic areas, bike trails and hike trails. Their are a few parks with ponds to check out some Arizona wildlife. The Hole-in-the-Rock is the reddish mountain formation. The hike trail there is easy and short, but again, a popular spot for sunset views of Tempe.
A 'hiking haven'. The Phoenix zoo is located here, as well as Hole in the Rock, another iconic Phoenix (small) hike.
Near Piestewa Peak, which is a great hike! The peak is not dog-friendly but there are other hiking trails in the area that are. Make sure to keep any dogs on a leash.
“Absolute best spot on a mountain to view the Phoenix Valley. Be aware, although it is a short hike, the trek can be rather steep in some areas. Moderate-high difficulty level. Very popular hike in the city so hike out early if you'd prefer to avoid crowds.”
“The native culture is a major part of Arizona and if you want to understand the amazing history of the tribes in this area through engaging exhibits, don't miss it. It's a must-visit for a visit to AZ! ”

“For a peaceful walk with beautiful scenery I’ve been here several times. And during part of the warmer times of the year there are so many butterflies to be seen nearby. Around the Christmas holidays they normally have live music Christmas lights and my favorite was the hot apple cider drinks.”
