Park renamed in honor of former Pima County supervisor

PIMA COUNTY, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A park on the northwest side has a new name to honor former Pima County Supervisor Ann Day.  A park near Mona Lisa and Ina was renamed Saturday as the "Ann Day Community Park."

Day was killed in a traffic collision back in May.  She had served on the board of supervisors for 15 years.


Day's colleagues described her as a cowgirl, a problem solver and a proud grandmother. Day often said open spaces and parks help to define us as a community. Day helped to secure funding for the park’s playground equipment. 
 
“It just means everything to me and my family because it’s such a difficult time, still and the parks and open space is what she believed in,” said Ann Day's daughter, Jill Watters said.
 
"Honoring her by dedicating a park where she actually took her grandchildren to play is a fitting memorial to a woman who made a real difference in Pima County,” said Chair of Pima County board of supervisors, Sharon Bronson.
