Best Of Tucson®

Best Park

Gene C. Reid Park

What better place is there for that clandestine midtown rendezvous with your fetching office co-worker? (Just hope you don't run into anyone else from the agency doing the same.) You two can power walk the 3-mile path around the golf course while listening to Rosemary Clooney's "Botch-A-Me," then cool your jets at the tented Edith Ball Adaptive Recreation Center (which is a fancy way of saying "city pool"). Bring a picnic basket of scrumptious canapés and pigs in blankets—with a thermos of virgin martinis—to sip while lounging languorously on the slopes of the DeMeester Outdoor Performance Center. No need for a concert; the two of you can make beautiful jingles together.
