Park Profile: La Madera Park

La Madera Park Tucson Arizona

La Madera Park is a 5.19-acre neighborhood park in central Tucson that includes a soccer field, playground, exercise equipment, picnic tables, a basketball court with hopscotch and foursquare, and one ramada.

Established in 1946, the park is surrounded by a residential community of the same name with houses that date from 1948 (most were built in the 50's-70's). As a result, the park is a hub of activity and is often full of kids, teens, and families. The park also has beautiful mature trees, including high-waving palm trees.
