CANOA LAKE IN HISTORIC
CANOA RANCH

Pima County‚Äôs Regional Flood Control District has partnered with Natural Resources, Parks and Recreation to restore a 2.5 acre pond at Historic Canoa Ranch in Green Valley. The new pond provides residents and visitors recreational opportunities, particularly birding and wildlife viewing. The added features around the pond include native trees and shrubs for increased wildlife habitat, a perimeter-walking path with benches and ramadas for shade and an area for small-scale special events. Walking paths now connect the pond to the ranch complex, the habitat restoration area, pollinator garden, the Anza Trail, and the Santa Cruz River.
