Town of Duncan:Sandra Day O’Connor Walkway Park.
Gila River Birding and Wildlife Trail is a wonderful park allowing one to easily catch a glimpse of Sandhill Crane or any one of over 300 species of birds that visit Greenlee County. November is the best time of year to see hundreds of cranes and thousands of fowl migrating from the north and resting along the shores of the Gila River. Birds and other wildlife can be viewed all year long, including great horned owls and bald eagles. This featured trail is a one-mile walking loop’s trailhead located as you travel on the east side of Main Street before heading north across the Duncan Bridge.

and Greenlee County pamphlets at the local visitor center or visit greenleebirding.com

The Bakery, one of few historical buildings remaining after many devastating floods that affected Greenlee County, is a great downtown landmark. This historical building, once housing Three Sisters Bakery, is now awaiting its grand reopening once the right investor is persuaded by its beauty and grandeur. An amazing part of the valley’s history, all on its own, is only enhanced with Spezia Square Park located on its east side. The park is the first preservation and enhancement project of Duncan Pride Society. Once the site of the Freiheit Building, built around 1913 by Mr. Spezia. It was demolished without approval of nearby residents -- Pride Society was formed that very same night. These pair of picturesque design beauties, having over gone many detailed phases, are now a photographer’s dream. A traditional white gazebo, antique clock, tree lined grassy surroundings, picnic tables, brick flower beds, and wonderfully designed old western facade backdrop with planked boardwalk -- who wouldn’t enjoy this peacefully serene setting!
