Riverview Park

2100 W Rio Salado Pkwy, Mesa, AZ 85201

Mesa Riverview Park, which was voted one of the greatest in the country by USA Today’s 10Best.com, is another must-visit. This outdoor facility features two playgrounds with the most up-to-date hands-on play equipment, such as slides, spinners, and swings, allowing children to play for hours.

Climbers may put their talents to the test on a 300-foot natural linear climbing wall with a covered fort on the park’s outskirts. The world’s highest rope climbing tower, which reaches 50 feet into the air, is the main attraction here. The park’s playground features a 75-foot zip line and a splash area.

The five-acre urban lake, which is ringed by a pavilion for events, three bridges, and various access points, is Riverview Park’s hallmark feature. A year-round splash pad with sponge flooring is also available. Child-size picnic tables are scattered among the covered ramada’s normal picnic tables, making it ideal for groups of all sizes. The palm-lined boulevard, known as the Paseo by locals, connects the Mesa Riverview retail complex and Sloan Park, home of the Chicago Cubs.

Amenities of Riverview Park: 

  • The Chicago Cubs’ new Spring Training home is Sloan Park.
  • Lake for Community Fishing

Fish in the lake are safe to eat. The communities, the Game and Fish Department, and the Department of Environmental Condition work together to monitor the quality and health of the lakes and fish. The quality of the water in the lake is checked to ensure that it meets state regulations. 

Trout, catfish, bass, and sunfish are supplied into the lakes from recognized fish farms that adhere to stringent fish health standards and quality control procedures. The majority of supplied fish do not survive long in the lakes, with 80 percent of stocked fish being taken within 30 days.

  • Variety of water features. From 9 a.m. to 10 p.m., seven days a week.

This splash area, dubbed a “spray ground,” features fountains and spray structures to keep you cool all year. It is open seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. and has a latching gate that may be unlocked by children.

  • Picnic places with tables in the shade
  • Shaded picnic ramadas can be reserved by calling (480)644-PLAY (7529)
  • There are miles of walkable walkways.
  • Showcase fountain
  • Bathrooms
  • Areas with no barriers to play
  • Sloan Park and Riverview Park provide public transportation alternatives.

The following are some of the highlights of the playground:

  • Genesis is a 50-foot-tall climbing tower.
  • Caterpillar mesh rope climbing structure 60 feet long
  • 2 playground clusters for children aged 2 to 5, 6 to 12, and 13 and above
  • Playground constructions that are shaded

The playground is fantastic. However, it is dispersed and has several blind spots. It may be rather crowded on a weekday afternoon. Because of its circular design, it’s difficult to go around the exterior to swiftly reach little children. As a result, it may be ideal for older children.

Slides, monkey bars, a climbing wall, and a bridge are all part of the bug-themed playground.
