Connect with Parks and Recreation efforts-in-progress, and the partners who are helping to make them happen:
Goodyear Community Health Park:
A 129-acre project developed in collaboration between the City of Goodyear, Abrazo West Campus, Adelante Healthcare, Cancer Treatment Centers of America, John D. Kuhn Ventures and Hickman Farms. The park will be a hub that encourages active and healthy living, and will include a wellness center, wellness garden, multi-use trails, and an education center.
Maricopa County Shared Use Initiative:
While many equate shared use with playgrounds, shared includes the creative reuse of vacant land, school classrooms or multipurpose rooms, gymnasiums, tracks and many other underutilized facilities.
Maricopa County Paved/Unpaved Bike Paths:
An interactive bikepath map to assist bicyclists in safe travel.
An initiative led by Mayor Greg Stanton, Councilman Daniel Valenzuela and Olympic Gold Medalist Misty Hyman, with the goal of improving health and wellness in the region.
