State Park :
Ripley Desert Woodland State Park
Added to the State Parks in 1988, Ripley Desert Woodland is located a few miles west of the
on Lancaster Road at 210th Street West. Donated to the State by Arthur "Archie" Ripley, the park protects and
preserves an impressive stand of native
which once grew in great abundance throughout the valley. Today, only remnant parcels of this majestic
woodland community remain in the valley, the rest having been cleared for farming and housing.
