Park of Four Waters Facelift

The Park of Four Waters Clean-up on Saturday, April 27 was a great success! Organized with the help of the Arizona Archaeological Society - Phoenix Chapter, sixteen people showed up bright and early with their work gloves, water, and great attitudes. The crew worked for more than two hours and cleared out about 6 truckloads of debris, including dead branches and trash. A cobble-lined pathway to the entrance gate was also created.

The timing of this activity was perfect. Pueblo Grande recently made a couple of improvements to the area including the placement of an interpretive sign about prehistoric Hohokam irrigation and a locking gate. The visitor experience will be greatly enhanced for future tours to the North and South Canals.

Marie did a wonderful job organizing the event and rallying the troops. Ellie set up a lovely (and delicious) picnic lunch. Special thanks to Bob for grilling hot dogs for everyone. Pueblo Grande is very fortunate to have such wonderful support and assistance from each and every one of you. We deeply appreciate what you do. Many thanks!
