Anza Park, established in August of 2007, is located within Avra Valley adjacent to and west of the Town of Marana boundary. The park consists of approximately 280 acres located along both sides of the Santa Cruz River. This area is a riparian oasis that supports a rich diversity of native plants, birds, and other wildlife, especially as compared to adjacent lands that are biologically depauperate due to decades of intensive agricultural use.
