{Location} Kriegh Park (Oro Valley)

James D. Kriegh Park in Oro Valley has a good place to play. (See Google Maps.) Note that the park has two entrances. You do NOT want to enter from the south entrance (on Calle Concordia) which is also the entrance to the Aquatic Center. You want to go around and come into the park from the north entrance off of Linda Vista.

To get to the park from Tucson, take Oracle Road north. The distance from the intersection of Oracle Road and Speedway is about 12 miles and the estimated travel time is about 30 minutes. Click on image to enlarge.directions_kriegh_park_1
The basic directions are: Oracle to E. Linda Vista. Then south on Egleston Drive, which is the access road into the park.

When you get to the stop light at Oracle Road and E. Linda Vista Boulevard, go west on Linda Vista. (If you’re coming from Tucson, this is a left turn.) Go down the road a bit and you will be able to make a left turn (south) onto Egleston Drive.

Follow the road past the blue-roofed kids’ playground, and go to the far end of the parking lot to park. Click on image to enlarge.directions_kreigh_park_2
