Pinal County is rolling out a planning process for the proposed Peralta Regional Park near Apache Junction — the first of seven proposed regional parks in the county’s Open Space and Trails Master Plan.
County officials are seeking input from the public about which amenities citizens would like to have at the proposed park. Staff of the Pinal County Open Space and Trails Department will hold a public open house Tuesday, June 23, to present information, concepts and maps for the proposed park and gather public input on proposed master plan elements.
Information stations will be set up 6-8 p.m. at the Superstition Mountain campus of Central Arizona College, 805 N. Idaho Road, room 126, in Apache Junction. Residents of Pinal County are encouraged to attend, learn more about the project and provide input that will be useful to shaping this plan.
Depending on public input, the proposed park could offer open space and outdoor recreation opportunities such as hiking, equestrian riding, mountain biking, rock climbing, dark sky watching, picnicking and camping.
