Todd House: Peralta Park to be a great addition to Pinal County

Welcome to autumn. It’s nice when the temperature drops below 100 degrees. Many of you may know that Pinal County’s Open Space Trails Authority is open to public comments on the Peralta Regional Park Plan. This is one of seven parks proposed in Pinal County’s Open Spaces and Trails Master Plan. Peralta Park will be located just east of Peralta Road and north of US 60. This proposed park offers hiking, horseback riding, mountain biking, rock climbing, dark sky viewing, picnicking, and camping. The planned 480-acre regional park is nestled in Trustland, Arizona, close to the Superstition Nature Preserve and the Peralta Trailhead. For more information about this planned regional park, please visit: http://pinalcountyaz.gov/OpenSpaceTrails/ParkTrailPlanning/Pages/PeraltaPark.aspx. Resident participation in the planning process has been remarkable. Over 60 residents gathered for the first public meeting. They shared their ideas, concerns, and general appreciation for having a separate area for quality time. As I look at the plans for this park, I am thrilled with the variety of activities people can enjoy. The park’s proximity to the Superstition Mountains makes it a perfect location to use as a base camp for excursions to the Superstition Nature Reserve. There is still a long way to go to realize this park. Kent Taylor, Director of Open Spaces and Trails, oversees and is passionate about the planning process. Going forward, the planning process will consider items such as the amount of space required for parking, number of tent sites, trail locations, and number of Ramadas required. Peralta Park is not only a great addition to this part of the county, but a tool to attract more visitors. These visitors get to experience Superstition up close and hopefully spend a lot of money at local stores. If you have any questions, feel free to contact my office at 480-982-0659.
