Christina-Taylor Green Memorial River Park Segment

On February 28, 2011, the portion of the CDO from Thornydale Road to Magee Road was renamed to Cañada del Oro Christina-Taylor Green Memorial River Park. Christina-Taylor Green was one of the victims of the January 8, 2011 shooting at a Congress on Your Corner event held by Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords.

Christina-Taylor Green Memorial Park Fund

The Christina-Taylor Green Memorial Park Fund was created by her family in honor of Christina-Taylor to establish a memorial park where families and children can enjoy and discover the beauty of desert gardens in an open space which celebrates the spirit of a young girl and her love for butterflies. Park improvements include a shaded, central seating plaza; a bronze statue surrounded by a butterfly garden; botanical trails; several benches to provide respite for Loop users and a butterfly sculpture atop a vertical monument. This park project was made possible by the very generous support of the community.
