 There's no doubt about it, people come to Payson & the Rim Country for its beautiful scenery, outdoor adventures and laid-back atmosphere. Everywhere you go, you're surrounded by spectacular views of the Mogollon Rim.

 

Whether you want to bike along the historic Main Street or unwind with a jog around Green Valley Park, there's something fun to do for everyone in Payson. Green Valley Park provides three lakes having a total surface area of 13.1 acres, 17.2 acres of grass, trees and shrubs, three picnic ramadas, two public restrooms, 3.8 miles of walking paths, boating and fishing facilities, picnic and outdoor cooking facilities, paved parking areas, and a complete irrigation system and pump station for the landscaped areas.

 

The Green Valley Park master plan also indicates the future construction of a multi-use building with concession area, a larger fishing dock, and enhanced landscaping as the need arises and funds for construction are available. Green Valley Park is part of Arizona's Urban Fishing Program and is recognized nationally as one of the best in the country. The program is a partnership with the Game and Fish Department and local Parks and Recreation Department to intensively stock and manage the park lake for fishing recreation. Simply put, the program operates on the premise that "if people can't get out of town to fish, we will bring the fish in to town for the people. The program provides convenient, affordable, accessible, and fun fishing for anglers of all ages and abilities.
