South Mountain Park Preserve is one of the largest municipal parks in the world. It covers 16,000 acres just a few miles south of downtown, making it nearly 20 times bigger than Central Park in New York. But you won’t find manicured grass and fountains at this park; instead, it's filled with native flora and ancient petroglyphs. South Mountain’s 50 miles of trails are popular with hikers, mountain bikers and horseback riders. If you're not feeling the aerobic activity, there’s also a paved road to the summit—and the bird’s-eye view of the city that awaits you there.
