When looking to buy your next home discover this absolutely amazing place on earth. Read More...Green Valley Park was officially dedicated on October 19, 1996. Dozens of people use the park daily for various activities & events: walking, fishing, boating, picnicking, skating, and general recreation and relaxation. 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 a 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 fish in to town for the people." The program provides convenient, affordable, accessible, and fun fishing for anglers of all ages and abilities. For more information about how you and your family can enjoy this program please visit the Arizona Game and Fish website. Green Valley Park is a cooperative water reclamation project between the Northern Gila County Sanitary District and the Town of Payson. This award-winning park has been designed to recharge the Town’s water table through passive percolation of treated effluent (about 325 acre/ft per year) leaking through the lake bottoms into the aquifer. The lakes also provide a means of distribution and storage of the reclaimed water for reuse customers throughout town and for irrigation of landscaping in the park. The reuse of reclaimed water helps both to conserve and preserve Payson's potable water resources.

Green Valley Park is also home to several large events that make Payson a great place to live. Each Saturday night in June and July, you can bring your cooler, blanket and a couple chairs and kick back to the sounds of the Summer Concerts. Also don't forget the massive 4th of July Hometown Celebration that happens in Green Valley on our nations birthday, complete with food vendors, all day music and games and of course a aerial fireworks display shot over the large lake. Green Valley Park is perfect for weddings, birthdays or just about any family affair.
