Papago Park is a hilly, desert park covering 1500 acres and is known for its distinctive red sandstone geological formations. The Park also has a wide variety of typical desert plants, including the giant saguaro cactus. It’s as easily half-mile walk along McDowell Street to Papago Park where you can use the Cross Cut Canal Multi-Use Path for walking, jogging, roller-blading or bicycling. Within the park there are places to picnic and ponds for fishing. Most of the places to visit in the park are within easy walking distance of the Magnuson Hotel Papago Inn.
