Scottsdale and the Valley of the Sun has a great selection of sports and outdoor recreation activities for your personal needs.  Individual participation activities such as walking, skating, jogging, tennis, pickleball, fishing, swimming and more.  Join a team and compete in volleyball, softball, basketball, kickball and more! Find your outdoor thing to do in the Scottsdale area. If you’re the outdoorsy type you’ve come to the right place. Enjoy our Scottsdale Parks and Trails, the McDowell Mountain Preserve, Pinnacle Peak and places to hike, bike and run!  Scottsdale’s year-round sunny weather, warm and arid climate, and many outdoor enthusiasts make it one of the most outgoing cities in the country. While golf may be the preference of many folks-and with more than 250 golf courses in the area, you can believe they’re satisfied-hiking and biking are all the rage in in the Valley of the Sun.

The facilities where these activities are held also make great locations for corporate or social functions.  Pick the sport or adventure activity that best fits your interests, we are sure you will not be disappointed!

With over 20 community parks and countless hiking trails, you can’t throw a walking stick or a bicycle wrench without hitting a foothill to bike, a desert mountain to climb, or an open range to explore.

But when it comes to outdoor activities, that’s just for starters. You could also take part in a wide variety of other outdoor recreation in Scottsdale, like horseback riding, hot-air balloon rides, desert Jeep tours, touring Sedona and Salt River Canyon, visiting the Phoenix Zoo, or taking in the Desert Botanical Gardens.
