    Ann Day's granddaughterOn Tuesday, June 7, the Pima County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved renaming Northwest Community Park, 7601 N. Mona Lisa Road, in honor of former District 1 Supervisor Ann Day who died in a traffic collision on May 7. 

    Day represented District 1 for three terms, from 2001 to 2012. She also served in the Arizona Senate for 10 years. 

    To memorialize her commitment to public service, Day’s family requested the county rename the Northwest Park the “Ann Day Community Park.” Day's granddaughter spoke during Tuesday's meeting.

    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.

    Pima County’s Natural Resources, Parks and Recreation will coordinate with the Day family to organize a dedication ceremony for the park’s renaming. Details will be announced at a later time.
