This park keeps intact much of the history of Arizona's first prison. From 1876 to 1909, this was the primary detaining facility for many of Arizona's convicted. Due to state budget constraints, the park was scheduled to close in 2010. Private donations totalling more than $70,000 were raised and the park is now open and leased to a local agency. New exhibits have since been added as well as initiating work on deferred maintenance. One memorable feature of the park is the set of old west style, inhumane prison cells in a dark spooky cave.
