Archery Range Reopens At Ben Avery Shooting Facility
Roadwork Project Prompted Week-Long Closure
November 1, 2015
PHOENIX — Archers will enjoy a smoother ride down Archery Drive beginning today to pursue their sport at Ben Avery Shooting Facility’s archery range.
In order to complete more than $300,000 in roadway improvements, the archery range was closed to the general public Nov. 12-19. A portion of the project was funded through the Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration (WSFR) program, a stalwart national funding source for state conservation and recreational opportunities, which includes the development and enhancement of archery ranges.
Located on 1,650 acres in north Phoenix, the Ben Avery Shooting Facility is one of the nation’s largest publicly-operated shooting facilities, drawing more than 120,000 shooters each year. A City of Phoenix “Point of Pride,” the facility has received a five-star rating from the National Association of Shooting Ranges.
