Saguaro National Park improving Mica View picnic area

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Saguaro National Park trail crews will begin improvements on the Mica View Picnic Area on Monday, April 9. The project, which is located in Saguaro National Park's Rincon Mountain District (east), will bring the picnic area up to ADA standards.

In an effort to allow ongoing public access to the Mica View Picnic Area, trail crews are scheduling the project in stages, limiting access to only the areas they are working on. Once completed, the new picnic area will be accessible to more of our visitors with limited mobility.

The scope of the project will include the use of heavy equipment, so park visitors are asked to please "pardon our dust and noise" while under construction.

Construction is expected to last approximately four weeks with a tentative competition date of May 4. All work will be performed during daylight hours.
