Ann Day Community Park dedication (photos)

Fitting re-naming of the 34 acre Northwest Community Park yesterday in memory of the late District 1 Supervisor Ann Day, who was killed tragically in a head-on car accident on May 7, 2016. MC District 3 Supervisor Sharon Bronson spoke of her colleague Ann as a “cowgirl and can do person”, who loved parks, and had even helped a Maui couple donate a Make a Wish mesquite tree there at the park. She also said that Ann was “a true problem solver across party lines”. Day served on the Pima County Board of  Supervisors for 12 years(3 terms) , had retired in 2012.

This park is located at 7601 N. Mona Lisa Road (southwest corner of Magee and Mona Lisa Roads).

Ann Day’s daughter Jill Watters, son in law Justice of the Peace Adam Watters (Precinct 1), and their 3 children (Caitlin, Courtland, Cassandra) were in attendance.  The grandchildren led the crowd in the Pledge of Allegiance.
