Mesa Grande Cultural Park is set to open for the new season Oct. 3, and the historic site already has a program scheduled approximately two weeks into the season.

Located at 1000 N. Date Street, the park is a prehistoric Hohokam site and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Arizona Museum of Natural History and the Southwest Archeology Team preserve Mesa Grande.

The first program set for the new season runs in conjunction with International Archeology Day on Oct. 19 and will include educational archeology demonstrations and crafts.

The Mesa Grande Cultural Park will operate on Thursdays and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sundays from noon to 4 p.m. Call the Arizona Museum of Natural History at (480) 644-2169 or visit for more information.
