Enchanted by Encanto

Encanto Park is one of the oldest parks in Phoenix. I hadn’t been there for many years but on New Year’s Day, Tony and I took a walk around it.

Located in central Phoenix, there is a lagoon with paddle boats.

Winter in Phoenix often looks like autumn elsewhere.

It was a bitterly cold brisk day (for us Arizonans), so we didn’t walk as long as we had planned.

Yet it was nice to see that the park is well-maintained and attractive, being enjoyed by many.

  1. Encanto is one of those places in Phoenix that are special and unreal, in being so unexpected. I was just rambling around it one afternoon, and happened to see a quinceañera in progress, which exactly perfect.

  2. I really enjoyed seeing these photos! I had forgotten about Encanto but the pictures brought back many memories of the place. I’m pleased to see it still looking so nice!
