The family of Christina-Taylor Green has partnered with Pima County Parks and Recreation/Parklands Foundation to build an extension to the CDO Linear Park recently completed. While the Linear Park has been very successful, the highly visable 2 acre piece of ground on the SW corner of Shannon and Magee roads remains unsightly with no funds to improve it. Our plan is to raise $85,000 within the next year to get this park built. Our hope is that $20,000 can be raised on social media while the remaining funds will come from charitable grants and donations from local businesses and philanthropic individuals. The park design will connect to the linear park and contain a large central seating area surrounding a butterfly garden with a playful childrens statue as the focal point. It will have benches and picnic tables for family gatherings and allow them to enjoy the beauty of the outdoors. And finally, the park will contain botanical trails that weave throughout trees and other native vegetation with signage to indicate the species. Water harvesting principles will be used throughout the park with signage to educate the public on implementation. Please help us raise the necessary funds to build the Christina-Taylor Green Memorial River Park, this is a project that honors our daughter because  our community came together to build it - that is something that will make us all proud!

Thank you very much to all our donors who answered the call, we are almost at our goal! At this time I would like to thank Gale Bundrick, the president of the Parklands Foundation for receiving the funds directly from GoFundMe and depositing them into the Parklands Foundation account to pay for the park improvements. Gale is retiring as president in January 2017 and the new president, Mike Hellon, will now perform the same services on behalf of our donors. Thanks again for all the support, the park improvements have begun!!

I can't think of a better way to honor the legacy of one who became little angel much too soon.
