Aqua Caliente Park

Tucson is in the Sonoran Desert.  We have a vast assortment of native cactus, trees, and such, but it is still a desert, so no lush greenery.  Except, where you find an oasis.  Aqua Caliente is such a place.  It is fed by it's name sake hot spring, Aqua Caliente,  Hot Water.  It was first part of a cattle ranch, then a place for tourists to soak in the warm waters for their health, then back to a ranch, and finally, a park belonging to Pima County.  A great place to walk around, sit and watch the ducks, or even a picnic.
