Union Hills Centre is part of Phoenix's Paradise Valley Village
"[Paradise Valley] village is noted for its open space character created by the surrounding mountains, Indian Bend Wash greenbelt and trail systems. . . . The surrounding Phoenix Mountains, part of the city of Phoenix Mountains Preserve system, provide the area residents with biking, equestrian and hiking trails, as well as picnicking and other recreational opportunities within a natural Sonoran Desert environment. Recreational opportunities also are available along the Indian Bend Wash, which was designed as a flood control greenbelt."
