Pima County's Agua Caliente Park, 12325 E. Roger Road, is now closed for extensive pond restoration. The closure, which includes the Ranch House Visitor Center and Art Gallery, is expected to last several months.
The restoration will help conserve water by minimizing seepage from the pond. Work also includes excavation and installation of a polymer-amended soil lining to the bottom and sides of the pond to reduce water loss, installation of a wildlife island, and replacement of the bridge to the current island.
The 101-acre park features an intermittent warm spring and ponds that are home to a rich mix of plants and animals. During this closure, people can visit McDonald Park, 4100 N. Harrison Road.
