A dedicated area for stargazing is planned in a 498-acre regional park to be constructed near Gold Canyon.

“Generally a passive recreation program like we have here, which is the goal of the task force, stargazing is part of that,” Pinal County Planning Manager Steve Abraham said of the group guiding the recreation planning of the land.

“Plus people really value the night sky. You don’t hear anybody lament, ‘Oh, this park is perfectly well lit.’ They go, ‘How come I can’t see the stars? Yeah, the stargazing component is a real plus for me, personally,” he said.
