Slide Rock State Park
This 43-acre historic apple farm was developed by Fran L. Pendley who acquired the land under the homestead act of 1912. He invented a unique irrigation system that is still in use to this day. Pendley planted his first apple orchard in 1912. He also grew garden produce and kept livestock. Slide Rock State Park is a fine example of early agricultural development in Central Arizona. Visitors of the park can wade in the water in the creek or slide down the Slide Rock State Park's water chute.
