Paseo Highlands Park and Goelet A. Beuf Community Center Opens

On July 12, the city of Phoenix will celebrate the grand opening of Paseo Highlands Park. Located on the southeast corner of 35th Avenue and Pinnacle Peak Road, the park will cover 40 acres and have a 48,000-square-foot community center.

The park will feature two lighted softball fields, one lighted soccer field, two lighted basketball courts, two lighted volleyball courts, a tot playground and bigger children’s playground, picnic and open space areas. The community center will offer a gymnasium, indoor running track, weight room, large multipurpose room, classrooms with computers, conference rooms and an exercise/dance room. This park will be the first community based policing center to be designed into the next generation of community centers.

There will be a special presentation in honor of Officer Beuf at the grand opening event. Please join me for the grand opening of Paseo Highlands Park, 9 a.m. July 12. Members of my staff as well as representatives of other city departments will be on hand to give tours and answer questions.
