Writing a blog about South Mountain Park Phoenix Arizona is a bit of a mixed bag.
The mountain creates a huge barrier in the city of Phoenix. On the south side of the mountain is an “AREA” that is called Ahwatukee. The address is still Phoenix, but, everyone that has live in the Phoenix Metro for awhile knows what is implied when you mention a restaurant golf course or school in “Ahwatukee” On the north side of the mountain is an AREA that is referred to as “South Phoenix”. If you don’t live here I won’t make sense, but to everyone that does live here they know what is meant.
The park it’s self is one of the Phoenix Points of Pride. (one of 33) It is the largest City Park in the U.S.A. one of the largest in both North America and the World.
The Park has been left in it’s natural form with 16,283 acres or another way to look at that number is 25.5 sq mi of dirt, rock, cactus, snakes, havalina and many other wild animals. It was established 1924 when President Calvin Coolidge sold 13,000 acres to Phoenix for less than $18,521. It has since been expanded during the ’70s, and ’80s. What a great place to hike, picnic or mountain bike year round.
Here are a couple great videos I shot while mountain biking:
Great location in the Phoenix metro with the following attractions close by:
Raven Golf Course Phantom Ranch
Nellos Pizzaria is one of the best in the valley. Rustlers Roost is a Huge tourist trap.
As always I have a list of homes at the bottom of each blog.
When you are ready to start looking for a home, I am ready to be interviewed. Call to set up an appointment.
South Mountain Park Phoenix Arizona has something for everyone.
