When you drive east on Indian School Road between 48th Street and 64th Street you will be driving next to the Arizona Canal on the north side of the street. At about 56th Street, there is a natural 20 foot drop along the canal which formed a sort of waterfall. In 2003, the city along with the Commission on the Arts, and Salt River Project (a local water provider) formed a partnership to restore an old hydroelectric plant and open the area to the public as place to gather for both learning and reflection.
Today’s photo is of the entrance to the walkway leading to the hydroelectric plant and the falls.
Tomorrow I’ll show you the plant and the water falling out of it.
