Woodshade Linear Park
This is more of a “trail” than a “park” but we are including it as it is really a lovely place to enjoy. The trailhead is located between Vistoso Village and Sanmaniego Ridge streets off of Rancho Vistoso Blvd. This shaded trail (Mesquite and Palo Verde trees line the paths) has cement paths from beginning to end, and borders a riparian area which offers the walker lots of opportunities for wildlife viewing. At the end of the trail you will arrive at Sunset Park. The paved trail ends at Hidden Springs Drive, but if you like you can continue on for about a quarter of a mile through the desert (watch for snakes during prime season!) on an unpaved trail until you reach Hohokam Park.
