Individual or club fishing is available at Lake Pleasant by boat or shoreline. Various clubs and organizations schedule amateur to pro-national events each year. Spring and Summer are optimal times to fish at the lake. Spring is the best time for anglers with the water level being high. Largemouth bass are in the shallows. White bass and striped bass are also in season. Summer time heat pushes the fish into deeper water where it is cooler. Night fishing is one way to increase your odds for largemouth bass. White bass or stripers are active in deeper water. Catfish are most active at night in the coves.

SPRING TRAINING

PHOTO COURTESY OF JOSEPH PUN

A HEAVY HITTER IN SPRING TRAINING With one of the country’s best facilities for Spring Training baseball – not to mention year-round Arizona Summer and Fall League games – and convenient access to just about every major sporting venue, Peoria is a sunny playground for sports enthusiasts. In addition to Spring Training baseball with the San Diego Padres and Seattle Mariners, sports-minded visitors can enjoy regular season baseball with the Arizona Diamondbacks, football with the Arizona Cardinals, 6

basketball with the Phoenix Suns and Phoenix Mercury, hockey with the Arizona Coyotes and NASCAR racing at Phoenix International Raceway. With three public universities, including Arizona State University, Northern Arizona University and the University of Arizona, and a host of private colleges and universities like the Grand Canyon University, Arizona proves to be a favorite among college sports fans.

Padres SAN

SEATTLE

DIEGO

The San Diego Padres have trained in Arizona since their National League inception in 1969; from 1969 to 1993 the team trained in Yuma and established a worthy tradition there in its own right until moving to the new ballpark in Peoria in 1994. Peoria Sports Complex houses the San Diego Padres in a 60,846 square foot clubhouse, which was renovated in 2014 upon agreement of a new 20-year lease with the City of Peoria.* The new clubhouse layout includes 1,465 square feet of dining space; an updated performance center with 4,462 square feet of exercise and weight training space; a hydrotherapy facility with four plunge pools and one therapy pool. There are 393 lockers for the hundreds of minor and major league players, coaches, trainers and staff. Indeed, Peoria Sports Complex is much more than just a spring training home for the San Diego Padres. It is also the year-round player development home as well. Once the big league club has packed up and headed west for the summer, the Padres host extended spring training, which is then followed by the Arizona Rookie League, the fall instructional camp and the Arizona Fall League. Before you know it, fall turns to winter and just as most of the country is still hoping to thaw out from wintry weather, San Diego’s boys of summer return to Peoria for a new spring training. For these year-round operations, Peoria Sports Complex also features indoor and outdoor batting tunnels, six major-league-sized practice fields (four lighted) and three half-fields.

The Seattle Mariners have trained in Arizona since their American League inception in 1977. From 1977 to 1993 the team trained in Tempe, while in 1994 the team moved to the modern complex in Peoria. Peoria Sports Complex houses the Seattle Mariners in a 56,224 square foot clubhouse which was renovated in 2013 upon agreement of a new 20-year lease with the City of Peoria.* The new clubhouse layout includes 1,080 square feet of dining space for its big leaguers and 1,890 square feet for its minor leaguers; an updated performance center with 5,680 square feet of exercise and weight training space; a hydrotherapy facility with four plunge pools and one therapy pool and 414 lockers for the hundreds of minor and major league players, coaches, trainers and staff. Naturally, Peoria Sports Complex has much more than just the spring training season for the Seattle Mariners. It is also the player development facility on a year-round basis as well. The Mariners first begin with extended spring training, which is then followed by the Arizona Rookie League, the fall instructional camp and the Arizona Fall League. And, of course, it is where you’ll find players of all levels in the organization rehabbing injuries, learning new positions and developing their skills during numerous mini-camps throughout the year.

* The Clubhouses have joined an elite group of buildings that have earned a LEED Gold Level certification from the US Green Building Council for it sustainability construction and design. LEED, which stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is a green building certification program that recognizes best-in-class building strategies and practices. To receive LEED certification, building projects satisfy prerequisites and earn points to achieve different levels of certification.

PLAN TO HAVE A GOOD TIME!

ULTIMATE FAN

For those who love non-stop sports action and want it for a fraction of the price, come play in Peoria. The Peoria Sports Complex is the spring training home of the San Diego Padres and the Seattle Mariners. The teams host training and developmental leagues throughout the year, and the public is always invited to the tournaments and games to take in the crack of the bat and get a sneak peek at future stars. Bring your glove for foul ball frenzy! To keep the baseball theme continuing, the city has several batting cages and baseball training facilities and opportunities for youth, many staffed with former college athletes and MLB professionals, so you can develop your young one's talent early. Located in the heart of Peoria's P83 Entertainment District, the Peoria Sports Complex is just steps away from some of the west valley's best shopping, restaurants and bars. The evolution of the P83 District proves to be the ultimate experience for all sports fans, thanks to easy access to other valley sporting venues such as University of Phoenix Stadium and Gila River Arena via the Loop 101.

OUTDOOR ADVENTURE Whether you like hiking, golfing, terrain bicycling, mountain climbing, jet skiing, paddle boarding or kit surfing, Peoria has it all. With more than 25 miles of hiking trails and 35 parks, Peoria is a playground for adults and kids alike. The city is home to Central Arizona’s second largest lake, Lake Pleasant, but you don’t have to own a boat or water craft to partake in the wet and wild fun. The lake offers several places to rent boats, water equipment and recreational rentals. Also, don’t fret if you don’t know how to navigate the lake area. The city of Peoria and Maricopa County offer many classes to teach kayaking by sunlight or moonlight and classes on what hiking trails will lead to the most pristine sunsets and picturesque landscapes.

BRAINIAC Look to the stars as you explore Peoria and begin with the Challenger Space Center. This award-winning museum takes you up to space to inspire, excite and educate people of all ages about the mysteries and wonders of space, science and the universe in which we live. The space center features flight simulators, multimedia presentations about space travel and exploration and 14

many interactive, hands-on activities. Culture enthusiasts can take a walk back in time at the Peoria Historic Museum. Visitors can walk through the old school house, featuring an authentic replica of a grammar school classroom as well as a host of other exhibits providing a window into Peoria’s history. This can be reflected by the many art pieces on display at the Peoria Art Gallery, located in Peoria’s city hall and hosted by the West Valley Art Museum. The West Valley Art Museum Permanent Collections contain more than 1,651 items from more than 75 countries. The collection also is home to more than 1,000 pieces of ethnic dress and textiles. Currently, West Valley Art Museum has the largest collection of ethnic dress in the southwest. The Museum also collects fine art prints from all over the world and includes such American artists as Andy Warhol, Peter Max and T.C. Cannon.

THAT’S ENTERTAINMENT Looking for high-quality, New York-style Broadway productions, look no further. The Arizona Broadway Theatre is a year-round, professional theatre company offering professional musicals in Peoria. The Broadway lineup is complemented by a refined dining experience, giving theatergoers a great night of entertainment in one beautiful location. Another hot spot for theatre is The Peoria Center for the Performing Arts, which not only brings award-winning community theater to the downtown area, but also children's programming with summer camps, a traveling "Youth Readers Theater" program and special events throughout the year. Ongoing tours of the facility are also available on a monthly basis.

GIRL’S NIGHT OUT For those who appreciate the benefits of relaxation and rejuvenation, Peoria boasts two spas located in the heart of the Sonoran Desert. Alevea Spa at Vistancia and The Spa at Cibola Vista provide premier spa, salon and wellness services. Desert spas offer a unique experience, balancing tranquility with nature – an experience only found here in the southwest.
