    Natural Resources, Parks and Recreation

    From caring for stately saguaros in Tucson Mountain Park to overseeing after-school recreation programs, we add a vital dimension to the lives of our residents and visitors. We invite you to hike and play in our parks or take one of the many classes we offer. We're working for you!

    Natural Resources, Parks and Recreation now has an online registration system. The system will allow you to register for leisure classes, Canoa Ranch tours, bird walks, nature hikes and other activities. You can also reserve a ramada for your next event. You’ll need to create an account to use it. With a couple of clicks and a few taps of the keyboard, you’ll be set up and ready to use the online registration system. You may also purchase an annual Tours and Outdoor Activities Membership Pass for significant savings on activity registration fees.
