The Arizona Canal

Arizona Canal at dusk

Arizona Canal near Glendale Avenue around dusk on September 22, 2012.

The Arizona Canal runs roughly west in Phoenix, farther north than any other canal in the Salt River Project’s system. It has a number of recreational, artistic, and other attractions along its length, but Phoenicians still haven’t attempted to make it a focus of their city, unlike San Antonio’s Riverwalk. See Canalscape.org for one group’s description of what such a focus might look like for Phoenix.

In the meantime, the Arizona Canal delivers water to users throughout the area, and access roads along its banks provide bikers, runners, dog-owners, and many others with a smooth, level path that stretches for miles.
