NileGuide Expert tip:
Encanto Park is home to the Enchanted Island, a small amusement park perfect for younger children.
- Encanto, which means "enchanted" in Spanish, is one of the largest and oldest municipal parks in the Phoenix area. The lush green environs are a welcome respite for visitors looking for a bit of shade, especially during warm weather days. Here you'll find joggers, central district employees having lunch, and families enjoying the on-site amusement park, Enchanted Island. At over 200 acres, the city park is well-equipped with amenities, including handball and racquet ball courts, lighted basketball courts, a softball field, and a large man-made lake featuring urban fishing, paddleboats, and canoes. The nearby Encanto municipal golf course is one of the oldest and most popular public courses in the area.
