Emerald Park-Mesa

This Park starts with a funny story of how I found it, so you can skip ahead, but you’ll miss a kind of funny flub I made. We had some time to kill between going to Sea Life Arizona and Bounce U in Gilbert, so I picked up a Starbucks coffee using a gift card and…

Turtle Park is located in Litchfield Park, right off Dysart and Indian School Roads, or more accurately 653 N Villa Nueva Drive, Litchfield Park.

Fountain Hills Park and Splash Pad

Last week we wanted to get out of the West Valley and try and take a drive to get the kids to fall asleep. I admit it freely! So, I had seen that Fountain Hills had a splash pad, so off we went. I didn’t do much research before we went, other than looking up…
