New Marana park to be named “Tangerine Sky Community Park”

A new park is coming to town, and it now has an official name. On May 3, Marana Town Council approved “Tangerine Sky Community Park” to be the name of the new park located at 4411 W. Tangerine Road, south of Tangerine Road between Camino De Oeste and Camino De Mañana.

The name came from a park survey conducted by the Town of Marana Parks and Recreation Department. Over 377 residents provided feedback on what amenities they would like to see at the park, including name ideas. The most frequently suggested names included Sky Ranch Community Park, Tangerine Community Park, and Tangerine Sky Community Park. Of those submitted names, Tangerine Sky Community Park received the most favorable votes from Council.

Soliciting public feedback on park amenities and collecting name ideas are just a few of the many steps the Town of Marana took to design the new community park. After the public provided their initial feedback, Town staff worked with Norris Design to provide two park layout proposals. The public provided their feedback on the layouts, and the final park design will reflect their input.

Construction on the park will begin later this year, and will take approximately nine months to complete. Amenities will include a dog park, parking lot, restroom, ramadas, play area, turf area, multi-use paths, and trails.
