Description: Ask for Walk Box at Front Desk. This nearly flat walk is primarily in a "linear" park that stretches along the banks of the Santa Cruz River in the heart of Tucson. The river park lets you feel you have left the city. During the Fall and Spring, there are many flowering plants along the popular, paved path. The Beatles song "Get Back" refers to Tucson. Tucson was the capital of the AZ Territory from 1867 to 1889.
