This is a pleasant but small park on a streetcorner. It has a statue of the senator, bench seating and nice but unremarkable local plantings. It makes the nearby bus stop nicer than most. But it isn’t really a destination.

While in the are, google searched for parks, trails and hiking. Goldwater park came up so we went to check it out. What a disappointment. Unless you are just a huge Barry Goldwater fan, this place is a waste of time. There was a statue...More

Small park hidden from a very busy intersection. Worth a visit Some people parked their cars in the very small parking lot sideways vs pull in parking thereby using more spaces than needed.

Paradise Valley I think bought the land and dedicated it to one of the great Arizonans , Barry Goldwater. Thank you sir for your intelligence, your foresight, your service to this country and well could you come back and save this country?

This sight provides homage to a well respected and loved member of Arizona and American history. It is small but suitable location in Scottsdale that provides a tranquil scene.
