The Tumbleweed Recreation Center provides a wide variety of classes, activities, and events, from gymnastics to personal training for all ages. This fantastic facility includes an indoor track, art studio, meeting rooms, racquetball courts, a dance studio, and even childcare amenities. The nearly 10,000 square foot gymnasium is an excellent place for pick-up basketball, volleyball, or a variety of activities that require ample space.

Tumbleweed Ranch

Exploring Chandler’s agrarian history, Tumbleweed Ranch is designated to educate the public regarding the East Valley’s agricultural roots.

The Chandler community was shaped in the 1890s by sugar beets, cotton, sheep, alfalfa, citrus, dairy, and a few other farming pursuits.

Playtopia!

Experience a 2.5-acre playground with several play zones with different themes, and lots of space for wild imaginations! Playtopia is a picnic and playground portion of Tumbleweed Park.

Farm Land – Lots of slides and fun stuff to climb on incorporating a life on the farm. Enjoy the shade from a large red barn canopy.

City Land – Paved streets, lamposts, street signs, and automobiles provide this urban-themed space representing the big city! Again, lots of climbing, riding, and sliding going on for the tots. You may even want to bring along the tricycles and small bikes to ride up and down the city streets.

Critter Land – If you’re looking for dinosaur bones, Gila Monsters, and giant tortoise shells, you will probably enjoy Critter Land.

There are 14 covered ramadas available to rent for family or corporate functions at Playtopia. Amenities include sand volleyball, restrooms, benches, swings, bbq grills, and even horseshoe pits.

Overall, Tumbleweed Park is known as the Pride Of South Chandler and has a lot to offer families, event-goers, music lovers, history buffs, and many other walks of life. The winter months prove to be a popular time of year for Tumbleweed Park, as one would expect. The most notable event of the year is the Ostrich Festival, which usually takes place in the spring, mid-March.

The park is open from 5:00 am to 10:30 pm for passive activities like running, jogging, walking, biking.

    Wide open spaces. Plenty of tables to accommodate your party. Just make sure to reserve your spot first. Sometimes it smells like cattle but it's tolerable. Enjoy.

    I attempted to read reviews on Tumbleweed Park, Chandler without putting on the McQueen or Germann Rd addresses. Usually with Google Maps it will show more. Not being able to look at reviews I drove in on McQueen and drove out on German. It did not look appealing and I just drove around. Putting in

    Lovely park to walk or sit and just enjoy the day. There a large swing and play area for the kids and wonderful verandas to have a lunch or party for the kids. The verandas do need to be reserved prior to going.
