    The Menlo Park Neighborhood Association proposed a 2 multi-station facility including concrete sidewalk, 2 shade structures, lighting and irrigation. Due to funding limitations, the city and residents revised the design and obtained additional funding from the Cigna Foundation ($12,300) and City of Tucson Ward One Service Line Warranty Funds ($14,240).

    Designed to increase health benefits of residents and broaden overall park use, this project complements the 2007 Menlo Park Master Plan. Deemed a medium to medium high stress neighborhood occupied by over 5,600 residents (2,900 households), this park supports a strong youth soccer program and many neighborhood gatherings.

    The project features four unique stations, two of which are handi-cap accessible. The equipment was chosen to provide strength training for the upper body, leg and abdominal muscle groups. The stations are located on a new concrete slab (20’ x 30’) under a newly installed, lighted fabric shade structure. The City also created an adjacent, handi- cap accessible parking space.

    The City of Tucson will be responsible for maintenance and operations of the project for at least twenty-five years as provided by the Pima County Intergovernmental Bond Contract.
