Photos, maps, and often a story about Tucson's small parks ("parklets") — often too tiny to appear on a map — as well as some hidden nooks that are great places to take a break from the sun or from a busy day.

Park yourself on Park
Down at the end of Park Avenue, south of the Lost Barrio and a couple of blocks before Park dead-ends at Aviation Bikeway/Highway, is this little spot with tables and landscaping with cisterns. A couple of bike racks make this an easy way to stop off from a ride on Aviation Bikeway. A bit farther north on Park is one very shaded picnic-type table but I think it may be for employees of the business behind the tables. (In fact, if you're here during business hours, you might ask.) There's one streetlight at the southeast street corner, and a little more light overhead.
Hours: Daylight hours, with some overhead light at night
Parking: Street parking, small bike racks
Location: Take Park Avenue south from Broadway or ride a couple of blocks north of the traffic circle along Aviation Bikeway
