Green park improvements

Posted: Updated:

Residents of one Tucson neighborhood are doing a lot to keep their neighborhood clean and green.

La Madera Park on Florence Ave. has lots of new "green" park improvements. It has a new water harvesting cistern, solar panels that control lighting for the park's ramada, a graywater system that captures runoff from the drinking fountain and restroom sinks, and other improvements. Neighbors held a celebration at the park Sunday afternoon to recognize the improvements.
