Visitor Center Rennovations
Park is having major heating/cooling system work done. The Visitor Center is closed (we don't know how long-mid July?) but restrooms, movie auditorium, historic ruins area, and picnic area remain open (no fees or pass sales during rennovation)
Nature & Science
The Sonoran Desert seems a hostile and unhospitable place, yet there are plenty of people, animals, and plants that call this area home. It may take a keen eye and a patient ear but you can generally find a thriving community wherever you search. We welcome you to share your photographs and stories of desert wildlife here at Casa Grande Ruins. Use the Contact Us link.
Did You Know?
The difference between a National Monument and a National Park is the way they are created. National Parks require Congressional approval but National Monuments are established by Executive Order of the President.
