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!
In just a few more weeks the Pima County Natural Resources, Parks and Recreation Department will roll out a new online registration system. The new system will allow you to register for classes or reserve ramadas from the comfort of your own home. You’ll need to create an account to use it, but don’t worry! With a couple of clicks and a few easy taps of the keyboard, you’ll be set up and ready to enjoy the convenience of online registration.
