A PARK DESIGN TAILORED TO YOU
Welcome! The Town of Marana Parks and Recreation Department is preparing to build a new community park. The new, approximately 12-acre park, was designed based on input received from Town residents. We hope you will visit this site regularly to follow the park’s construction.
THE CONCEPTS ARE IN!
Between November and December, the Town of Marana surveyed the community to assess the type of park facilities they would like to see in their new park. Walking and bicycling paths, playground equipment, picnic areas, shade, a dog park, and a non-lighted multipurpose grass area ranked high as preferred park features. Use of paths and trails, social gatherings, use of the playground, walking the dog and nature appreciation ranked among the highest reasons why residents would visit the park. The majority of respondents live within 2 miles of the park.
A PERFECT LOCATION
Surrounded by views of the Catalinas, Tortolitas, and the Tucson Mountains, the Tangerine Sky Community park is the perfect home for Marana's newest community park - a place for neighbors to play, be active, and enjoy the outdoors.
4411 W. Tangerine Road, Marana, AZ
The new Community Park will be located south of Tangerine Road between Camino de Mañana and Camino de Oeste.
COMMUNITY PARK RECIPE
What Makes a Marana Community Park
- Average Community Park Size: 10-40 acres
- Community Park Service Area: surrounding community of 1 mile radius
In general, community parks provide active and passive recreation activities and serve as a social and recreational focal point for multiple neighborhoods. Community park amenities often include shade ramadas, picnic tables and benches, walking paths, children’s play areas, unlit multi-purpose fields, a play court, a restroom, and parking. A goal in the design of this particular park is to preserve the Tortolita Fan natural environment, the terrain, and the vegetation, as much as possible.
The design of this community asset and its amenities will be determined through a design process that involves the neighbors and stakeholders.
