The Paseo Vista Recreation Area includes an archery range, disc golf course, dog park, playground, picnic areas and more than a mile of walking trails.

3850 S. McQueen Rd.
Northwest Corner of McQueen Rd. and Ocotillo Rd.

For nearly 30 years it was a working landfill, a large man-made dirt mound with sloping sides rising above the streets and nearby houses. Then the people of Chandler made the investment to give this place a new purpose. Today, the slopes still dominate the landscape but they are covered with boulders encased in wire to help control erosion, decomposed granite, wildflowers and other plants.

Most of the amenities are not visible from the streets below. But Chandler residents who make the worthwhile walk, ride or drive to the top of the hill will be able to appreciate and enjoy the Paseo Vista Recreation Area for many years to come.

Vehicle access is off McQueen Rd., 1/4-mile north of Ocotillo Rd., and there are more than 330 parking spaces. Direct access is also available to bicyclists, joggers and others via the adjacent Paseo Trail along the Consolidated Canal.
