County dedicates new park in Green Valley

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Pima County dedicated its first-ever park in Green Valley this morning.

When finished, the final cost will be nearly $6.5 million but the money comes from a variety of sources, including a future bond sale.

If voters approve the bonds, the park will be expanded to include more softball fields, covered bleachers, trails and a dog park.

The county approved Canoa Preserve Community Park last year when it became apparent there was a lack of facilities for a growing number of softball teams in the area.
