“Sundial”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

Very nice. You think "Sundial" come on, but this is very nice. The desert plants are wonderful. I never could tell time with this, but the setting is really cool.

“Neat area to check out”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

I've lived here for 14 years and went up to see the sun dial because there's not much to do. It's a neat thing to do, great way to educate kids on how sun dials work.

“Cute town center”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

The Carefree Sundial is in the center of downtown Carefree. The landscaping is lovely with varied types of desert flora. Many of the arts and wine festivals are held there. Lovely little area!

“Interesting”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

The sundial was interesting, but as a few reviewers have already mentioned, it's best to go when they are hang a festival in that it's located in the middle of a square surrounded by various shops.

“Beautiful surroundings but few shops wait for a festival”
Reviewed 17 February 2014

Interesting to see the third largest sundial in the western hemisphere. Many varieties of mature desert plants to see, a few small galleries,a few tourist shops and a few cafes. Best to visit when they have a festival.
