I was born in Phoeniz, Arizona, but had not returned to visit for more than 30 years until November 2015. A favorite childhood memory was picnicking in Encanto Park, a lovely oasis in the desert at 2605 North 15th Avenue in the city. To my delight is it still there and just as lovely as I remember it.

Thank you, jmorth. Encanto Park is located at 2605 North 15th Avenue, a few blocks south of West Thomas Road. The park also has a golf course and swimming pool.

Thanks. Doesn't ring a bell. I lived in Phoenix a while back in 1988/89.

I grew up in Phoenix, and Encanto Park was a favorite outing for my family. I had most of my early birthday parties there.It's fun to see the pics, so thank you! I haven't been back there in probably 30 years.
