New Hours for Aquatic Center

Every year the Aquatic staff meets to decide how to best program Superstition Shadows Aquatic Center so it maximizes pool usage and provides the community the best opportunity to take part in the Learn to Swim program. To assist with the heavy volume of evening swim lesson participants, we’ve adjusted our open swim time and added a third swim lesson timeframe.

Star Parties

The Superstition Mountain Astronomical League is a group of amateur astronomers in the Gold Canyon/Apache Junction, Arizona area. Each year, members of the “League” conduct a series of open house public astronomical observing sessions and demonstrations, commonly called “star parties,” to supplement public education, to provide the community with telescopic views of celestial objects and to answer questions about astronomy and astronomical equipment. In short, this is an opportunity to see the moon, planets, stars, star clusters, galaxies and other astronomical phenomena using sophisticated telescopes and to talk with very knowledgeable and experienced amateur astronomers. No fee is required at Peralta Trail Elementary School. A $7 per vehicle park entrance fee is assessed by Lost Dutchman State Park, unless you have an Arizona State Parks park pass, which can be used at all Arizona state parks. The remaing schedule for this year’s observing season (winter, spring) is shown below. All events are held on a weather permitting basis: i.e., we need clear skies; no rain, or a few clouds at most.
