Project Profile:

Yuma Crossing State Historical Park

Project Summary

Admission is required to support the maintenance program. Weddings and several special events are held here. Irrigation had been suspended for three days prior to a wedding, so there were some grass stress areas, but it was necessary to suspend irrigation because of tents, tables, and chairs for the guests. Rows of trees mark the inside border of Grasspave2 reinforcement. Fire trucks are able to access around the entire park without disturbing its historical beauty. In many cases on this site, buildings mark the one side of the fire lane, while trees mark the other. The end result is that fire truck access is safely provided without visitors being aware of it.
