Queen Creek celebrates park & rec month

Posted

In honor of Park and Recreation Month in July, Queen Creek is highlighting all the ways the town is stronger and more resilient because of parks and recreation. 

The town of Queen Creek offers award-winning parks, an extensive trail system with the Queen Creek and Sonoqui washes and the Trails at Horseshoe Park, along with a variety of recreation classes and opportunities, according to a press release from the town.

More parks and recreational opportunities are underway in Queen Creek. Phase II of Mansel Carter Oasis Park and Frontier Family Park, a new 85-acre park on Signal Butte north of Queen Creek, are both slated to open in late 2023. Frontier Family Park will include a recreation / aquatic center, set to open in summer 2024. 

To celebrate Park and Recreation Month, the town’s recreation division is hosting a QC Splash Pad Party on Friday, July 15, from 6-8 p.m., at Mansel Carter Oasis Park, 19535 E. Appleby Road. There will be food trucks, music, family fun and more. All ages are welcome.

The town’s recreation team already is planning for a lineup of fall events including Founders’ Day and Trunk or Treat for Halloween. Businesses, organizations, and individuals are invited to participate by hosting a vendor booth, sponsorships, or volunteering. Learn more.

The town is hiring part-time recreation aides, starting at $15 per hour. Learn more and apply at QueenCreekAZ.gov/jobs.
