    Agua Caliente park damagePima County’s Agua Caliente Park, 12325 E. Roger Road, re-opened Jan. 25, following clean up from the heavy storms that blew through Tucson Jan. 20.
     
    There will be some areas within the park where access will be restricted; however, the Ranch House Visitor Center and Art Gallery will be open, 10 a.m.–3 p.m.

    Agua Caliente, literally meaning hot water, is a unique 101-acre park that features a perennial warm spring and pond that is home to an exceptionally rich mix of plants and animals.

    Agua Caliente Park has a long and interesting history with evidence of human habitation dating back about 5,500 years. In 1873, a ranch and health resort was developed to promote the curative properties of the warm springs. In 1984 local businessman Roy P. Drachman donated over $200,000 toward the purchase of Agua Caliente Ranch and Pima County named the park in honor of this contribution. Roy P. Drachman Agua Caliente Park opened to the public on January 19, 1985.
