CATALINA VISTANS CELEBRATE RAMADA COMPLETION AT TAHOE PARK



CVNA Board Members and ramada supporters perform ribbon cutting
 

Almost 100 people gathered at Tahoe Park on May 8 to celebrate the completion of the historic ramada located on the northeast corner of Tahoe Park.  Catalina Vista residents were joined by Tucson Rodeo executives, City of Tucson executives, City Councilor Steve Kozachik, ramada donors, and planning team members in a memorable occasion that marked the start of what has now become a popular destination for birthday celebrations, neighborhood meetings and egg hunts.   

Visitors to the ramada will find a bronze plaque on each of the four pillars explaining the neighborhood history which includes the founding of Catalina Vista neighborhood from the vestiges of a large ranch that was once home to Tucson’s original rodeo grounds.  The antique green roof tiles and large stones that make up the base of the ramada pillars came from the original Kramer ranch when it was demolished to make way for a new housing development on Elm Street. 

No reservations are necessary to use the ramada.  Its use is basically on a first-come, first-served basis.  There are two small, stone benches inside the structure, and users are bringing their own chairs and tables.



Robert Just (City of Tucson), Jose Calderon (Tucson Rodeo Board Chair) and Gary Williams (Tucson Rodeo Director) pose beside the bronze plaque honoring rodeo history.
