​​Pima County Natural Resources, Parks & Recreation, and the Regional Flood Control District are helping the family of Christina-Taylor Green to create a design and raise funds for renovations to a Pima County Park named in her honor. Christina-Taylor was the youngster killed in the Jan. 8, 2011, shootings that claimed the lives of five others and wounded Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords.

Specifically, the renovations will:

  • Add a central seating plaza with decorative concrete and a statue surrounded by a butterfly garden
  • Create a botanical trail through native plants identified with botanical signs
  • Preserve existing trees and include stormwater harvesting design elements
  • Provide park benches and picnic tables for individuals and families to relax and enjoy the park 
  • ​Show the value a public-private partnership can bring to the community
