The Esmond Station Regional Park site consists of 274 acres of undeveloped land east of Houghton Road and north of Mary Ann Cleveland Road. Portions of the site are adjacent to the Empire High School campus. The property was purchased by Pima County using 2004 bond funds for the purpose of creating a regional park serving the residents of Pima County. (The park was referred to in the 2004 bond program as the Southeast Community Park.)
The master planning process recently started and studies related to the biological, cultural, and physical resources of the site are under way. Preliminary designs for the park will begin after these studies have been completed and after the community has been given an opportunity to provide input regarding the facilities that may be constructed at the park. It is the County’s intent to create a park that respects the rich history of the area while also addressing the recreational needs of the surrounding community.
For more information, please contact Sandi Garrick in the Pima County Project Management Office
at (520)724-6710 or by email
Additional meetings will be conducted in the coming months to review draft plans for park development.
