Enjoy Peoria, Arizona Like a Local: Cactus League Spring Training Stadium Guide

Headed to Peoria Stadium, spring training home to the Seattle Mariners and the San Diego Padres?

Make the most of the warm spring weather with some of the best nearby places Peoria has to offer:
City Park: Rio Vista Park, one freeway exit south of the stadium on Thunderbird Road, has so many amenities (including a skate park, fishing ponds, and playgrounds) that one reviewer writes, "This place is like Disneyland! It has everything!" 
Dog Park: Foothills Park, on 59th Avenue and Union Hills Drive, boasts a dog park, skate park, and more.
Place to learn about Native American culture: Deer Valley Rock Art Center, north of the 101 off 35th Avenue, offers an excellent visitors center and then a "very easy trail taking you to the petroglyphs."
Place to learn about Old Arizona: Sahuaro Ranch Park Historic Area, south of Peoria Avenue on 59th Avenue, preserves an old ranch, combined with a city park that boasts a large playground, picnic areas, and more.
Mexican Food: La Purisima, on 47th Avenue and Glendale, has authentic (and delicious) pastries (pan dulce, conchas, y mas), tamales, and more.
