This may seem like a stupid question, but is there somewhere to park to get on the canal easily.

I see where the canal cuts across 15th for example but there does not seem to be any areas to park.

The canal isn't so intended for public access that there are parking areas designed to be convenient to it. Most people park in shopping areas that are nearby and walk from there.

Canal Access is illegal. They will tow your vehicle immediately. You can also be arrested, and they have in the past.

I don't think he's trying to DRIVE on the canal bank. Big stretches of the canal bank, including but not limited to from Metrocenter to 32nd St., are open for walking, jogging, biking.

The only place I know of with dedicated parking would be Rose Mofford park over by Metrocenter, with canal trail access. Not sure if you mean 15th avenue or street, but neither one has dedicated facilities nearby.

Ditto on Rose Mofford Park or Metro Center.

Assuming we're talking about the Arizona Canal & 15th Ave. Another option is the shopping center at Central & Dunlap and walk or bike to the canal. Best thing is to look it up on google earth or whatever mapping software you prefer and find something closest to you.

Some of the canals have adjacent parks here and there.

Some yes. The majority of the system is marked "No Trespassing" and they mean it.

Out in Chandler we have the Paseo Trail along the Consolidated Canal.

Paseo Trail

Best access is via Tibshraeny Family Park, Chandler Blvd and Cooper .

The trail gets a lot of use. I'm glad it's available.
