Queen Creek’s New 48-Acre Park Opened September 1st
Mansel Carter Oasis Park is now open. Queen Creek’s new 48-acre park has a “first-of-its-kind” inclusive play area, pirate-themed splash pad, lighted ball fields, exercise course, picnic areas, wheel-friendly skate park, and the Town’s first recreational fishing lake.
The lake will be regularly stocked as part of the Arizona Game & Fish Community Fishing Program. The lake is open daily during regular park hours. The lake is 13 feet deep at its deepest point with circulators and aeration systems to keep the water moving.
A fishing license is required for any person age 10 and older. Children 9 and younger can fish without a license. All of the types of Arizona Game & Fish Department (AGFD) fishing licenses will be valid at Mansel Lake. Fishing licenses can be purchased at any of over 300 license dealers in the state, including Walmart, Bass Pro Shop, Big 5 and almost any sporting goods store that sells fishing poles and at any of the 7 AGFD offices in the state. A license can be purchased online at www.azgfd.gov and is valid instantly and can be printed at home.
