Car-free Loop adds another segment on Tucson’s East Sideby Pima County News on Apr. 25, 2012, under Pima County, Regional Flood Control District, Southern Arizona, Transportation, Tucson
Celebrate the completion of another segment of The Loop on Friday, April 27, at the south end of Michael Perry Park on Tucson’s East Side.
The Loop is 55 miles of car-free paths being developed around metropolitan Tucson, with links to Marana and Oro Valley, for Pima County residents and visitors on foot, bikes, skates and horses.
The new segment — a project of Pima County and the City of Tucson — extends the Pantano River Park divided path (one gravel; the other, paved) past Michael Perry Park south to Sellarole Road.
The celebration begins at 2 p.m. at the new neighborhood trailhead at East Stella Road. Bring your bike and join a group fun ride after the celebration.
The Loop will connect Pantano River Park to greenways along Harrison Road and the Julian Wash, Rillito River Park, and Santa Cruz River Park.
