Menlo Park, at the Base of "A Mountain"
Sentinel Peak Park, or "A" Mountain, is a cactus-dotted park in Menlo Park's historic district, distinguished by a massive, man-made A-shape. Handcrafted statues at the riverside Garden of Gethsemane represent important incidents from Christianity, such as the Last Supper, while a paved path climbs Tumamoc Hill to Steward Observatory for sweeping views of the city of Tucson. West St. Mary's Road is lined with fast-food joints and Mexican restaurants.
Menlo Park is a Tucson, Arizona suburb with a population of around 8,000 Tucsonans, Menlo Park residents enjoy an urban lifestyle, and the majority of residents rent their houses. There are several restaurants and parks in Menlo Park. Menlo Park residents appear to be liberal. Menlo Park's public schools are well regarded.
Tucson has been a place where people have constructed homes and harvested crops for over 4,000 years. Its continuous occupancy is evidenced by early pit dwellings, then Spanish villages, and now modern-day luxurious living. The Menlo Park Historic District, located on Tucson's west side at the base of "A" Mountain (Sentinel Peak) and adjacent to the city's bustling downtown, is regarded as the foundation of the city's deep roots.
When growing rice, American Indians built primitive houses, and Spaniards built a mission and convent for their first arrivals. The oldest extant house dates from 1877, in an area that began to take on its current form in the early 1900s. The place has been designated as a central transformative site in Tucson's history as a result of the subsequent changes reflecting spatial and cultural principles.
Menlo Park is now an upscale Mexican barrio with over 2,000 homes in a mix of architectural styles including colonial revival, bungalows, postwar ranches, prairie-style, and contemporary. Mexican presence can be seen on the façades of buildings, houses, and shops—cultural diversity that brings colour and harmony to the historic settlement.
Builders are once again squabbling to build new row houses and single-family homes on lots that stood vacant during the crash, with only tumbleweeds blowing over deserted streets as visitors.
Developer Jerry Dixon says, "The fuse has been lit, and the rocket ship is taking off." “Housing and shopping are the future's keys.”
The completion of the $197 million new Sun Link Streetcar line has sparked a revival in downtown Tucson development. The streetcar stops at Mercado San Agustin, the city's first and only public store, and the Menlo Park District has resurrected as a west-side anchor to the downtown revitalization.
