Park of the Canals


Located in North Mesa, the Park of the Canals preserves both local history and terrain. Hohokam Indians inhabited many different regions throughout Arizona over 2,000 years ago, becoming one of the most prominent cultures in the Southwest and lending to area's significance. Particularly special, the Hohokam people are credited with providing the first canal system from the Salt and Gila rivers. In fact, the modern metropolitan city of over 3.5 million people still relies on the pathways of this ancient canal structure. As it's also a park, the city of Mesa has added a mini botanical garden, information center, playground, and picnic tables for your convenience and enjoyment.
