Park Profile: Curtis Park

Curtis Park is an 18.7 acre park in west Tucson that includes two lighted little league fields, a lighted baseball field, 2 picnic tables with grills, one ramada with four tables and a grill, drinking fountains, restrooms, and a playground.

Sharing the property is Sporting Chance Center, an indoor sports facility that features nearly 40,000 square feet of versatile indoor space, including 36,000 square feet of state-of-the art floating wood floor that can accommodate up to five basketball courts or eight volleyball courts.

Curtis Park, which opened to the public in 2007, is part of the regional park system with Flowing Wells Park and Dan Felix Park. All three parks are easily accessible via the Rillito River Park on foot or bike.

One of the most attractive elements of this park is that it connects to The Chuck Huckleberry Loop, which is 131 miles of car-free paths around metropolitan Tucson. 

Loop maps are available at local bike shops; at Natural Resources, Parks and Recreation, 3500 W. River Road; and at the Communications Office, Administration Building, first floor, 130 W. Congress.
