The City of Maricopa had the foresight over 10 years ago to acquire additional park land as they saw their community begin to expand. The 110-acre facility, known as Copper Sky Recreation Complex was planned through extensive public involvement. Copper Sky was is the active sports complex, fitness, recreation and leisure destination for the City. The site beautifully accommodates multi-use fields, a championship four-plex softball/little league baseball complex, restrooms and concession buildings, and maintenance building and storage yard. There is also large turf areas for public events with an amphitheater, a 5-acre urban fishing lake surrounded by fishing nodes and picnic ramadas. The park also includes a dog park, skate plaza, basketball courts, sand volleyball courts, tennis courts, horseshoe pits, and a large playground area. The park serves as a regional multi-use flood control facility for the City of Maricopa. The overflow water from the Vekol Wash comes into the site and begins by filling the dog park, then the south multi-use fields, then the north multi-use fields, and then around the lake to Bowlin Road and back to SR347. Diverting this flood water protects the residents of Maricopa from the potential flooding of their homes and businesses.
