Sabino Canyon visitor parking overflows lots

Citizen Staff Writer

A surge in visitors at the Sabino Canyon Recreation Area sparked a parking melee, with cars lining the road outside the Northeast Side attraction.

“We’re not sure whether it’s the great weather, people taking ‘staycations’ at home, or the fact that the shuttle is operating all the way to Stop 9 for the first time in two years,” said Larry Pratt, the Coronado National Forest’s urban-developed recreation project manager.

The biggest problem is during peak visiting hours on Saturdays and Sundays. To maintain safety, parking laws will be strictly enforced, says a news release from the national forest.

An overflow parking lot is in development by the nonprofit Friends of Sabino Canyon and should be available later this year, the release said.



Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
