FOCUS AREA | ENTRY SEQUENCE
Currently, the park entry point sits at the end of a road through the village of Tubac, with nothing more to grab a visitor’s attention than a small yellow sign that declares “Yes, we’re open!”. This entry sequence is intended to create a more captivating entry point for the park, and to serve as a landmark that can be seen throughout Tubac, enticing more visitors through the park’s gates. Landscaping and botanical walks line the public area of the site, create a benefit to neighbors and visitors alike who may find a moment of respite along the park’s outer walls. Green techniques are utilized, creating microbasins along the road border to capture stormwater runoff from the town, creating an opportunity for additional irrigation for native plantings along the border. These plantings are all near or near-native, creating an effective demonstration of what is possible to create with low-water, desert-appropriate landscape.
