Once a bustling civic center, this prehistoric archaeological site features one of the last remaining platform mounds surrounded by a plaza, which was built by the ancestral Sonoran Desert dwellers between AD1100 and 1450.
Mesa Grande Cultural Park will be open 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturdays and noon-4 p.m. Sundays. Go to arizonamuseumofnaturalhistory.org/plan-a-visit/mesa-grande.
