159 neighbors want the Landing At Lehi Falls in Mesa.

Nestled in the northern border of Mesa near the 202 Freeway and Gilbert road, the Landing at Lehi Falls will utilize a half-mile stretch of Mesa’s historic canals and surrounding plots of land to create a truly unique public space. With its canal boardwalk, multi-use public square, sports fields, and mixed-use trails, the Landing at Lehi Falls will be a place of relaxation and recreation for families and individuals of all ages and walks of life. By focusing on the historical significance of the park’s location and drawing inspiration from world-renowned public spaces, the Landing at Lehi Falls will not only be a landmark for the East Valley, but a draw for people from all over the country.

This park is not only a great opportunity for families and community members to gather but it encourages healthful living. It will increase the appeal of Mesa to those who are looking to buy a home or start a business. Its a win win.

As noted by other people, other cities in the valley have great parks, green belts and developed canal paths. Mesa needs to follow their lead. This park is a great start!

I'm excited about this prospect! One of the things we sorely miss from our previous home is the proximity to Chaparral Park in Scottsdale, and this project has the potential to provide a similar combination recreational space that we would just love and could enjoy during the entire year.
