Mesa's free party in the park returns!

After moving for one year while Pioneer Park was rebuilt, Celebrate Mesa is returning Saturday, April 14 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The event will help celebrate the state-of-the-art park, which includes a huge multi-story playground and an elaborate splash pad. The splash pad has a 15-foot-high water wall that is the first of its kind in Arizona.

Celebrate Mesa celebrates Earth Day with several activities including a Living Green Village where you can learn about solar cooking, solar energy, gardening, composting, tree care, energy and water conservation and recycling.
