Downtown Phoenix never fails to surprise and delight. DPJ’s Live PHX series captures the moments that illustrate why we love life in our city.

There are certain locations in central Phoenix that instantly make you feel like you’ve traveled to a completely different place. The patio at Encanto Park‘s historic clubhouse is one of those locations. This recent photo captures the view from the patio during that golden hour when our stunning Arizona sunsets take center stage.

The medley of reflective water, soaring palm trees and lush green grass present a scene more tropical than desert and one you won’t find anywhere else downtown. When the weather is just right, you might even convince yourself that you’re exploring a park in San Diego or an island in Hawaii. Of course with the Midtown skyline and views of Camelback Mountain in the distance, you are also reminded that this beautiful view is truly, uniquely Phoenix.

    Blacks in the Lodestar Center right now @ 1125 W Jackson St including one wearing a blue cap and laughing to torment a Catholic, and their Mexican/Latino/Chicano, et al cohorts were seen getting off the bus near/overheard talking about your park and saying that they look for minors there to groom for pedophiles to divert from them raping cops who interfere with them annihilating the Catholics in AZ to get all the charity tax credits/contributions/donations to rule the state. They also said security at most if not all parks was planted and hides their illegal activities.
