Park
“In my way of thinking, this is the best growers market and local craft scene in town! From early spring to late fall, on Saturday mornings from 7am until noon, people show up very early to set up their tents and bring out their beautiful just picked fruits/veggies and their hand made wares. There is always music as well as children and dogs! Oh and don't miss a breakfast burrito from Java Joe's!”

“There are several areas of the park, including connecting open spaces that serve as a wildlife bridge on the west side of town. The park preserves and showcases symbols/artwork in the stone made by ancient cultures. Parts of it are also peaceful places to explore out in the desert. Fall through early spring are best to visit.”

National Park
“Petroglyph National Monument protects one of the largest petroglyph sites in North America, featuring designs and symbols carved onto volcanic rocks by Native Americans and Spanish settlers 400 to 700 years ago. These images are a valuable record of cultural expression and hold profound spiritual significance for contemporary Native Americans and for the descendants of the early Spanish settlers.”
