    Come November, users of The Loop will be able to travel the entire 14-mile length of the Julian Wash Greenway between the Santa Cruz River and Rita Road.

    Julian Wash Greenway flierLet’s celebrate another major connection Pima County has completed in The Loop on Saturday, Nov. 1!

    Head to the Mulcahy YMCA at Kino Sports Complex on East Ajo Way for the 10 a.m. dedication ceremony with a “ribbon-breaking” ride or run to follow.

    Return to the Y where there will be refreshments and a bike rodeo. Water bottles, backpacks and 200 kids’ helmets will be given away. Bike jerseys will be for sale. And you can trade your Halloween candy for tickets to the Reid Park Zoo.

    Or ride or run to:
    • Augie Acuña Los Niños Park, northeast of South Alvernon Way and East Drexel Road, where you’ll find refreshments, a climbing wall and other activities.
    • Thomas Jay Regional Park at South Craycroft and East Littletown roads.
    • The Roy Schoonover Trailhead on South Kolb north of Interstate 10.
    Or start your celebration anywhere along the route! Pima County Bicycle Ambassadors will have water and aid stations along the way.

    The final 2.7-mile segment that made the Julian Wash Greenway complete was funded by the Community Healthcare Benefit Foundation of Pima County, supported by Tucson Medical Center and Carondelet Health Network, and is a community effort to improve health and fitness outcomes in the region.

    The Julian Wash Greenway runs by:
    • Kino Sports Complex and Kino Environmental Restoration Project.
    • Sunnyside Unified School District’s Craycroft and Los Niños elementary schools and Billy Lane Lauffer Middle School, where students have already turned The Loop into an outdoor classroom.
    • The giant sun-tracking panels at the University of Arizona Tech Park’s Solar Zone.
    • Julian Wash Archaeological Park, 2820 S. 12th Ave.
    • Southern Arizona VA Health Care System at 3601 S. Sixth Ave.
