Udall Park preview; A Mountain firework plans; Brushy fire

Posted: Updated:

East-siders got to add their two cents to plans to improve Udall Park.

Employees with the Tucson Parks and Recreation department held a public meeting Tuesday night to discuss changes to the park. Visitors got a chance to view maps illustrating a number of improvements.

"You can see that it's calling for a new four field ball complex. We're not sure if that will be a baseball, soft ball or little league, and a new amphitheater," says Robert Just from Tucson Parks and Recreation.

Comment cards were passed out to visitors so everyone could give their input on the plans. Parks and Rec plans to hold a second public meeting-- but so far the department has not set a date and time.


If you're planning on catching the fireworks show from A Mountain on Sunday, here's what you need to know. It's scheduled for 9:15 to 9:40.

A Mountain will be closed to the public.

Viewing areas are located on parking lots B and C on the west side of the Tucson Convention Center, the city owned lot at 22nd street and I-10 frontage road, the city/state parking garage at 498 West Congress. And the Catalina Parking lot at 419 West Congress.


There's a new wildfire burning on the Douglas Ranger district of the Coronado National Forest.

The Brushy fire, is currently about 540 acres and is at 0% containment.

It started from lightning on Thursday. Its expected to move slowly as a ground fire.
