The tall palm trees, open lake, picnic areas, lagoon and boat house in Encanto Park are enough for people to escape the busy Phoenix (which is among the least fit cities in the U.S.) form some peace and quiet. Rent a boat and go fishing. The two golf courses, nature trail and the amusement park of more than 200 acres are a great bonus. The Enchanted Island is one of the most distinguished attractions. You can ride the historic Encanto Carousel and pedal-boat across fish-filled lagoons.
