Splash Park is a new Tucson BrightSpot

Saturday was the launch of a new Splash Park (and Jungle Gym) at a urban core neighborhood park in Tucson, 4th Ave. and 2nd Street.  Mark and I stopped by the next day to catch shots of the park--there were about a half dozen kids nearby but he tries to not take shots of kids in order to honor their privacy.  Funded mainly by a Federal Community Development Block Grantshows, it is an example of how we do need and use federal funds at the broader community level.  Although I no longer work for HUD, when I see projects such as this, I feel proud to have been a part of HUD's Community Builder Program a decade ago. I think this project earns my "BrightSpot" posting, do you?
