  • This place is beautiful! A literal oasis in the desert! You would miss it if you weren't looking for the entrance! I did an engagement photo shoot here for close friends, and at every turn, there was another fabulous spot! There are pine trees, eucalyptus, bamboo, a myriad of flowers and Cacti, an abundance of butterflies and bees, and a calming nature to the entire preserve. Come early, bring plenty of water, good walking shoes and a camera. The greenhouse is wonderful!
  • This is an absolute treasure in the heart of Gilbert. The various migrating and native birds you can find here are quite impressive. There are often photographers and bird watchers here taking professional images of the birds. Young families are able to enjoy the animal watching, get a short hike in, and allow the kids to get some energy out on the playgrounds. The observatory is usually open 1x/week. The pond is a great place to fish, and enjoy some open water in Arizona without driving far out of the valley.
