TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) -- Officials at Saguaro National Park say all unmanned aircraft are barred from the southern Arizona park.

The park has updated its written policy to address restrictions on aerial devices including drones within its boundaries.

Park officials said Saturday that the restrictions are in line with the National Park Service.

The ban also applies to quadcopters and model airplanes.

The park plans to enforce restrictions on use of drones until federal officials figure out any permissible uses and their effect on wildlife and noise level.

Saguaro National Park straddles the city of Tucson and is home to the nation's largest cacti.
