A very quick but nice walk while we were waiting to hop into the dog park. It is done nicely but perhaps not as much of a "must do" while in Scottsdale as something like the zoo or the Botanical Garden.

This landscape adjoins the Chapparal Park and the local water treatment facility. Both areas are well laid out and provided a living guide to the area's floral and fauna

I had been going to chaparral Park for many years before I noticed this garden tucked away in the NE corner near the dog park. A nice addition to an already terrific park.

This is right behind the ball park & dog park. Well done signs to explain the watering system & suggestions for planting arid soil plants most efficiently.

Came across this while walking along N Hayden park land. It is located at the back of the park behind the off leash dog runs. Quite an assortment of plants and most are marked, which is helpful.

As residents of a state prone to drought, we found this rather extensive xeriscape installation inspiring. Birds love it especially. Plaques explain flora and also techniques for trapping as much rainwater as possible to recharge underground water tables and to prevent runoff and erosion. Very...More
