The City of Tucson is embarking on an exciting master planning process for Gene C. Reid Park. Rooted in conversations with the community and a rigorous understanding of the park’s physical conditions, the purpose of this master plan will be to arrive at a design that protects the best of Gene C. Reid Park, while casting a vision for future improvements. A 10-minute, map-based survey, is now open to gather input about how the community uses the park and their priorities for the future of the park. Input will directly influence the design ideas that are generated. The survey will close on Tuesday, May 31, at 11:59 p.m. Community input is a critical component of the planning process, and this is just the first engagement opportunity of many for the broader Tucson community to share their feedback.

Felix Lucero Park: Garden of Gethsemane is a religious, cultural, and historically significant site along the Santa Cruz River, just north of Congress Street in the historic Menlo Park neighborhood. The overall park site and associated paths and gardens were created in the early 1980s to display religious sculptures produced by Tucson artist Felix Lucero in an intimate, self-reflective setting.

Over the years the sculptures have been witnessed to vandalism, and the current park site requires maintenance related to paving, site walls, and landscape improvements. The City of Tucson Parks and Recreation has assembled a design team to solicit a public response to proposed improvements to the park site, interpretive signage, and security upgrades to assist the creation of a new master plan to guide future upgrades to the Garden of Gethsemane.

Take the survey to let us know what you think about the plan. The survey will close on Sunday, Nov. 21, at 11:45 p.m. Read more and take the survey on the website (bit.ly/felixlucero).

El Jardín de Getsemaní es un sitio religioso, cultural e históricamente significativo a lo largo del río Santa Cruz, justo al norte de la calle Congress en el histórico vecindario de Menlo Park. El sitio general del parque, los senderos y los jardines fueron creados a principios de la década de 1980 para exhibir esculturas religiosas producidas por el artista de Tucson, Felix Lucero, en un ambiente íntimo y autorreflexivo.

A lo largo de los años, las esculturas han sido testigos de actos de vandalismo y el sitio actual del parque requiere mejoramientos relacionadas al pavimento, las paredes del sitio y el paisajismo. Los parques de recreación de Tucson ha reunido un equipo de diseño para solicitar una respuesta pública para presupuestos de mejoramientos para mejorar el sitio del parque, los letreros  interpretativos y las actualizaciones de seguridad para ayudar en la creación de un nuevo plan maestro para guiar las futuras actualizaciones del Jardín de Getsemaní
