Additional Comments: County's Feliz Paseos Park provides a much better experience although much further away: well laid out trails, eye candy signs about Sonoran Desert, a few well-placed ramadas, respectful users.For years, COT has missed opportunities to restore Rio Vista Park as a breathing space for city dwellers AND a vital link in wildlife corridors impacted by infill and disastrous fires in the Catalinas. During the pandemic, sports fields, dog runs etc were closed down, and they can't be used by many Tucsonans even when open (not into team sports, lack of mobility, lack of money for fees and equipment, etc). We need a COT Park where quiet reflection and walking is pleasant, without fear of off-leash dogs, without loud noises from sports fields, dog runs, and picnic areas. Portland OR has a wilderness park of over 5,000 acres within city limits, much valued by residents and visitors. While areas around Tucson are protected by the County, Saguaro NP, USFS etc, how about something closer to home? Families should have nearby, free places to take kids to learn to love and protect the Sonoran Desert. Parks should be part of a healthy ecosystem, not endanger it more. Frederick Law Olmsted, born 100 years ago today, recognized those values.

Additional Comments: Thank you for engaging stakeholders in the master plan for Rio Vista. We appreciate your openness to considering alternatives to the conventional approach to a park master plan. Rio Vista Natural Resource Park is a rare treasure within the Tucson Parks and Recreation system, and we need to protect and enhance its unique values as an ecosystem and as a place to forge a bond between visitors and nature.

Additional Comments: I really like this park and am very worried you're going to ruin it. I think you should upgrade what you already have and set some of those funds aside to have someone with authority tell the drug addicts and homeless people to get off the Ramadas and play areas and clean up the dangerous mess they leave behind.
Brandi Fenton park and Geoge Mehls park do a good job of it because they always have workers there, but they don't have the nice trail and natural area to walk in.
Please don't waste all your money ruining that area and expanding the park area or this park won't be worth coming to anymore.

Additional Comments: Water sources on the east side of the park near Cactus Blvd would be really useful. Many people drive and park on Cactus to walk their (leashed) dogs on the nature trails. It would be great if there was a water fountain on that side for humans and dogs. It would also be nice if there was a water source for the wildlife and even the horses.
