Around Scottsdale: Camelback Park

This past week the City of Scottsdale dedicated one of its newest additions to the parks system, Camelback Park.  This beautiful 37 acre park is located between Camelback and Chaparral Roads and east of Hayden Road in Scottsdale.  Some residents remember that location was home to the Villa Monterey Golf Course that went out of business about 4 years ago.  So after months of construction the park is finally open to the public.

Camelback Park is a wonderful addition to the City of Scottsdale and includes multi use paths, expansive open green space and lots of trees.  The City even added low impact jogging paths next to the main path.

Also, this park is directly north of the Giants training facility and will make for a beautiful gateway into Old Town Scottsdale.

Lastly, I just wanted to make sure that everyone understands that these pictures were taken in December and I had to shovel no snow to take them.

You can find a few more pictures of Camelback Park on my Flickr page here.
