Explore the Outdoors Around Chandler

Whether you want to spend the day bird watching or exploring geological formations, you can do these things and more at the best outdoor attractions around Chandler.

Here are a few favorites:

Riparian Preserve at Water Ranch

The Riparian Preserve was developed in 1999, and it's organized into different zones ranging from marshlands to native riparian and upland vegetation areas. More than 4.5 miles of trails meander through the preserve, and they feature interpretive educational panels on the plants and wildlife. Nearly three hundred species of birds have been spotted here, and the floating boardwalk at the northern part end of the lake provides views of the ducks gliding on the water.


Hole-in-the-Rock is a popular attraction that as the name suggests, is a hole in a rock. This pass-through is found in a sandstone butte and is a short tenth of a mile hike from the parking lot. Visitors can also explore surrounding caves and enjoy picturesque views of downtown Phoenix.

Camelback Mountain

The Camelback Mountain is one of the most predominant landmarks in the Phoenix area. Its shape resembles the hump and head of a kneeling camel, and it features an elevation of 2,704 feet. As one of the most popular hiking destinations in the United States, it attracts thousands of visitors every year. Two of the trails are extremely difficult as they subject hikers to steep elevation grains and uneven terrain.

Rose Garden at Mesa Community College

With nearly nine thousand rose bushes, the Rose Garden at Mesa Community College is the largest rose garden in the desert Southwest. It began in 1974, and the flowers bloom in an array of colors. The garden hosts a few events every year and is also known for its innovative economic initiatives.

These are just a few of the outdoor destinations that residents of Vive can enjoy. If you are thinking about calling our community home, please contact our leasing agents to arrange a tour.
