Riverview Park in Mesa is Impressive

Riverview Splash padDoes it make sense to take children to the park in Phoenix when its 105 degrees?  Only if there’s a splash pad!   That was the temperature when the picture to the right was taken at Riverview Park in Mesa.  That didn’t seem to bother the children playing in the water and the parents who didn’t need to work about their safety as they would in a regular pool. Riverview is one of many parks in the Phoenix area that use splash pads to help Phoenicians endure the summer heat.  In fact, the splash pad, open 9 a.m. – 10 p.m. is just one of the many attractions in this highly rated  public park in Mesa.  To find out what other features make this a top public park and probably the best park in Mesa, read on.

Other Riverview Park Amenities include a Fishing Lake, Playground, and Cubs Spring Training Facility

Image result for riverview water park in mesa,azThe Riverview multi-use complex opened for the public in June 2015. .  If climbing is what you’re looking for get ready to tackle the 50 foot tall Genesis climbing tower right next to the splash pad and a 60 foot RiverviewSplashPadlong caterpillar mesh rope climbing structure and playgrounds. There are also shaded picnic areas with tables and reservable ramadas. And bathrooms.  The complex also features four professionally groomed Soccer fields and two Multi-use fields that are available to the public June through mid-January each year

 

Community Fishing Lake

The lake at Riverview Park is a community fishing lake and cooperatively managed between the Arizona Fish and Game Department and thDSCF2272e City of Mesa and are stocked throughout the year. Youth ages 10 -17 need a $5 Youth/Combo Hunting and Fishing license. Youth under 10 years do not need a license. The fishing lake offers a variety of fish that are safe to eat.  Channel catfish, rainbow trout (in season), bluegill, redear sunfish, hybrid sunfish, largemouth bass, tilapia and carp are regularly stocked, and 80% of the stocked fish are caught within 30 days.

 

 Chicago Cubs Spring Training Facility

DSCF2268

The new Chicago Cubs training facility sits on the former Riverview golf course which saw its peak during 1997 – 1998, generating a significant profit for the City of Mesa but saw a declining customer base since then.  It closed in 2011 to make way for Sloan Park, the new Spring Training home of the Chicago Cubs. The Sloan Valve Company acquired the naming rights in January 2015. It was formerly known as Cubs Park. With a capacity of 15,000, Sloan Park is the largest spring training stadium by capacity in Major League Baseball. Next to Sloan Park and looking out over the urban fishing lake is the Sheraton Mesa Hotel.

Overall, Riverview Park is one of the best in the valley offering some of the most up to date features of a well designed public park.Riverview Playground So even in the heat of summer stop by, enjoy the splash pad and shaded playgrounds and ramadas and see what else Riverview has to offer when the temperature cools down!
