While many of the towns outside of Phoenix
were started as retirement communities, with rolling golf courses and day trips throughout the region, those staying in Waddell apartments can take advantage of a different kind of attraction - White Tank Mountain Regional Park, the largest regional park in the area.
Accounting for nearly 30,000 acres, much of the park is made up of the White Tank Mountain range, which rises to heights of more than 4,000 feet in some places, and sharply drops off to valleys below.
For those staying in Waddell apartments, the park plays host to a number of events each year for those of all ages. Among those events include a family moonlight walk, a plant science trail walk and stargazing programs, offering Waddell apartment residents views of the sparkling Arizona night sky away from the light pollution of the city.
The park also has roughly 25 miles of trails of varying difficulties for Waddell apartment residents to explore on their own, along with a 10-mile competitive track for a challenging and strenuous hike or mountain bike ride.
The rugged land also played a role in the name of the park. While not frequent, heavy rains that hit the mountain peaks quickly flow into the valleys below, creating fast moving waves of floodwaters that, over time, have carved depressions - or tanks - in the white granite rock.
