According to a press statement, the new park at Elliot and Meridian roads has a custom-built playground, four ramadas, and a 1-mile illuminated asphalt walking route loop that runs around the east, south, and west sides of the Signal Butte Water Treatment Plant.
The city of Mesa understands the importance of outdoor meeting areas for its citizens, and the city is recognized for having a variety of exceptional parks, with Signal Butte Park adding to that reputation.
Signal Butte Park received funds from the 2012 Parks Bond, 2014 Water Bond, Highway User Revenue Fund, and City Transportation Fund because it addressed the requirements of three distinct City of Mesa agencies.
Signal Butte Park’s initial phase covers around 30 acres. A bridge across the wash and a BMX track or path for non motorized dirt bikes will be included in the second phase, which is projected to be finished in 2023. The second phase will be funded by the Mesa voters’ approval of the 2018 Parks Bond.
It’s a three-dimensional geometric playground that’s completely unique to the Phoenix area! It was rapidly christened the spaceship park by the kids, and it’s easy to understand why: it looks like a Star Trek space port.
This park has three different playgrounds, all of which promote coordination and agility. The first two structures are smaller and suggested for children aged 5 and younger, while the third structure is larger and suited for children aged 5 to 12.
