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.

And an amusement park on Enchanted Island.

Still decorated for the holidays…


With inflatable ornaments…



Colorful sculptures all around…


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.
