Tucson is planning to unveil a skate park named in honor of the youngest victim of the Tucson mass shooting.

City Councilwoman Regina Romero and community organizers plan to unveil the Christina-Taylor Green Memorial Skate Park facility on Saturday morning.

An anonymous donor inspired by Christina-Taylor financed the park, along with a local homeowners association.

Christina-Taylor and five others were killed on Jan. 8, 2011, when a gunman opened fire at a Tucson grocery store where then-Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was holding an event.

Thirteen others, including Giffords, were injured.
