Gilbert Water Ranch

Tuesday, March 10th, 2009

Spring is here and the flowers are blooming. It’s time to get out there.

If you’re from the Phoenix area but don’t have time to go for a long hike, take a quick trip to the Riparian Preserve at the Gilbert Water Ranch. One hundred and ten acres of land used for water treatment have been co-developed into a desert wetland oasis for over 200 species of birds.

Many flowers are already showing off including Mexican gold poppy, owl clover, desert senna, brittlebush, globemallow, fiddleneck, creosote, fairy duster, and tree tobacco.

Along with flowers, the Riparian Preserve offers bird walks, fishing, stargazing, a simulated Mars landscape, and an archaeological pit. It’s also a great place to watch the sunset.

The Riparian Preserve is located on the southeast corner of Greenfield and Guadalupe roads in Gilbert and it is open from 6:00am to 10:00pm, 7 days a week.
