Ann Day Community Park Dedication
Pima County officials will unveil a sign formally renaming Northwest Community Park in honor of former Pima County District 1 Supervisor Ann Day, who died in a traffic collision May 7.
District 3 Supervisor Sharon Bronson, Chair of the Board of Supervisors, will speak along with neighborhood representatives.
Day represented District 1 for three terms, from 2001 to 2012. During Day’s tenure on the Board, she strongly supported Pima County parks and had significant involvement with creating the Northwest Community Park. She vigorously advocated for funding the dog park and the ramadas located at this facility. Securing funding for the covered playground equipment was one of her last actions while serving on the Board.
She also served in the Arizona Senate for 10 years.
