Estrella Mountain Regional Park near Goodyear was one of the first public parks created by Maricopa County. Dating all the way back to 1954, it remains one of the region’s largest recreation sites, offering everything from baseball, biking and camping to golfing, hiking and horseback riding. Kind of makes sense that it needs a killer gathering spot, right?
The visitors’ center at Estrella is one of three popular, high-profile regional parks where Hernandez has shown its expertise in Construction Services and Facilities Management. Our skilled tradesmen completed all plumbing and painting work from the ground up, including a unique finish on the exterior metal panels to really make the place pop.
Estrella has come a long way with these new additions. Originally part of Mexico, the area – known as the Sierra Estrella mountain range – became part of the U.S. with the Gadsden Purchase in 1853. Today, it includes almost 20,000 acres of pristine desert, recreational trails and facilities.
Hernandez also applied its expertise to the visitors’ centers at Maricopa County’s Usery Mountain Regional Park in northeast Mesa and Cave Creek Regional Park off Carefree Highway north of Phoenix. The former comprises about 3,600 acres and includes breathtaking vistas, a stunning variety of plant life and a wind cave, while the latter comprises almost 3,000 acres of jasper-studded hills and the feeling of being back in the claim jumpin’ days of the gold miners.
