Mayor of Tucson Jonathan Rothschild says "If your child is differently-abled, or if you're an older person it has accessible ramps and safe swings and its all part of our big park improvement project."
The project was paid for by impact fees. Those are funds collected from builders when a new neighborhood or development goes in.
