Paseo Vista Recreation Area Dog Park The Paseo Vista Recreation Area, is located on the northwest corner of McQueen and Ocotillo roads. For nearly 30 years it was a working landfill, a large man-made dirt mound with sloping sides rising above the streets and nearby houses. Then Chandler made the investment to give this place a new purpose. Today, the slopes still dominate the landscape but they are covered with boulders encased in wire to help control erosion, decomposed granite, wildflowers and other plants. Most of the amenities, including an archery range, disc golf course, dog park, playground, picnic areas and more than a mile of walking trails, are not visible from the streets below. But Chandler residents who make the worthwhile walk, ride or drive to the top of the hill will be able to appreciate and enjoy the Paseo Vista Recreation Area for many years to come. See Details
