The Ahwatukee Foothills has many neighborhood parks along with city of Phoenix Parks. They are plentiful and beautiful.
Because we almost never get rained out, a great thing to do in an Ahwatukee park is to host a child’s birthday party.
A huge benefit is that every child in their class could be invited along with the parents. A softball game, croquet or badminton, or an old fashion sack race would wear them out. The potato chip and cookie crumbs would return to mother nature. And at the end of a glorious day, everyone felt good.
