Dreamy Draw Recreation Area is open to the public with new-look ramadas and an improved resident experience!

The Dreamy Draw Recreation Area is a hub for hikers, bikers, families and more. Phoenix Parks and Recreation has finished improvements to the park, that coincided with the City’s Drought Pipeline Project.

Improvements to the site include expanded parking area, including six ADA accessible parking spaces, three small family-friendly ramadas, and a new, six stall gender-neutral restroom.  Four designated pull-through equestrian trailer parking spaces are being added for easy access, and a bike lane redesign which includes an adjacent natural surface walking path.  There will be ADA accessible routes from the parking lot to the ramadas, restroom and to the Dreamy Draw Bike Path.

“We are dedicated to providing our community with access to quality recreational opportunities,” District 3 Councilwoman Debra Stark said. “The Dreamy Draw Recreation Area has been a cherished part of our community for many years, and we look forward to seeing it reach its full potential with these exciting improvements.”

Parks and Recreation Director Aguilar shared her enthusiasm for the project: “The Dreamy Draw Recreation Area is an important part of our local landscape, offering residents a place to get outdoors and enjoy nature. We are thrilled to be able to offer more amenities for visitors in this beloved recreation area.”

Dreamy Draw Recreation Area is located at 2421 E Northern Avenue and is open from 5 a.m. to 7 p.m. (extended hours apply during summer months).

Renovations to Dreamy Draw happened alongside the City’s Drought Pipeline Project, which updated and replaced existing infrastructure and install new infrastructure needed to serve all customers, no matter where they live or work in the city’s service territory.
