Naranja Park Expansion Project closures and access changes for March & April

As the Naranja Park Expansion Project nears completion, the Town of Oro Valley provides this update on the progress of this transformative effort.

  • March 4-5: Naranja Park will be completely closed to widen and pave the park’s main intersection.
  • Starting March 4: The park’s south entrance at Naranja Drive will be closed for 4-6 weeks for Musette Drive bridge and storm drain work. Access to the Archery Range will still be available.
  • March 6: The park’s new north entrance at Tangerine Road opens, becoming the sole access point through mid-April.
  • March 6 through mid-April: The northern entrance will be the exclusive access point to Naranja Park during this period. The southern entrance will re-open in mid-April.

These temporary closures are crucial to completing the Naranja Park Expansion successfully, adhering to schedule and budget, as the Town strives to deliver an enhanced park experience for the community.

A grand opening event to unveil all the new park amenities is currently being planned, aligning with favorable weather conditions and project completion.

“The scope and complexity of the Naranja Park Expansion Project underscores the Town’s commitment to providing outstanding recreational spaces,” said Paul Keesler, the Town of Oro Valley Public Works Director. “Temporary inconveniences now will result in a more enjoyable park in the long run, and an exciting grand opening event for everyone, which we’re pleased is coming soon.”

As we navigate these developments, we appreciate your understanding and cooperation. Stay tuned for updates as we move toward the grand opening of the expanded Naranja Park, creating an exhilarating space for all to enjoy.
