    The 56.7-acre Brandi Fenton Memorial Park is managed by Pima County's Natural Resources, Parks and Recreation Department. The park balances the need for public recreation while retaining the character of the Binghampton Rural Historic Landscape through a collaborative effort involving citizens, elected officials and County staff. The park includes three soccer fields, covered basketball courts, shade ramadas, an equestrian arena and facilities, horse shoe pits, a playground, splash park, an off-leash dog park, walking paths, a fitness course, and a memorial garden at the visitors center.
