PHOENIX – On Monday, July 17, Arizona State Parks and Trails will hold the second of three public open houses on the master plan for Rockin' River Ranch State Park.

At the open house, planners will highlight public input gathered at the first meeting, held on June 1 and attended by more than 100 people. Three preliminary plans will be presented.
