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.
