Creating an archaeological park

This seems like a good thing ARCHAEOLOGY: Vista Del Rio honors its former residents

The Vista Del Rio neighborhood on the city’s Northeast Side is a quiet, residential area – probably not unlike it was 1,000 years ago when another neighborhood – of the Hohokam culture – occupied the same turf.

The city is putting finishing touches on a ramada and a series of walkways through the newly designated Vista Del Rio Archaeological Park, a 4-acre set-aside just north of Tanque Verde and Dos Hombres roads.

A formal dedication program is anticipated in January or February.

  1. I just wanted to comment on the importance of the Vista del Rio Archaeological Park. The decision to preserve this small, yet important park was one of the best ideas residential homeowners have had. I am grateful that they took the time to save such a small yet influential area where people can come and appreciate the history and archaeology of the Tucson area. If permitted, I plan on conducting archaeological fieldwork in this area for the University of Arizona. Please feel free to contact me.
