Joining Hands


An arch over the walking path of a new linear park frames the view of Spud Rock in the Rincon Mountains ahead.

The figures come from a large Hohokam clay pot that was used in ceremonies about 1000 years ago. Joining hands, they encircle the ancient vessel, an emblem of communal life.

And now they span the path of this park, which is part of a network of parks that will one day encircle the City of Tucson.

Joining hands, the City Parks Department, the Pima County Parks Department and the University of Arizona have collaborated to create the Julian Wash Greenway. ⇓
