Silly Mountain Fundraising Drive
Silly Mountain Park is a popular family-friendly East Valley destination.  Upwards of 10,000 people visit the park each year.  There are 10 hiking trails rated easy to moderate.  There also is a botanical walk featuring a variety of native plants.

SALT is sponsoring a fundraising campaign to raise $10,000 to fund a number of enhancements to the park, including a new 4-panel kiosk, new signage and landscaping near the parking area. 

These enhancements will help make Silly Mountain Park a great experience for all.

Note: All donations will go towards the Silly Mountain Enhancements Project.

Thank you!
