Sentinel Peak Road Review


Sentinel Peak Road

Everyday, hundreds of residents and visitors walk, bike, and drive on Sentinel Peak Road - which climbs and encircles Sentinel Peak Park (also known as 'A' Mountain). The City of Tucson launched a survey to better understand how and when our community uses the park. 

Gates for the park road are currently open from Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. The City is looking to gauge the public’s interest in creating car-free times or days where access to the road is restricted to pedestrian and bike traffic.   


Public Survey

The City of Tucson developed a survey to hear from community members on issues related to Sentinel Peak Park. The survey was available online from March 2019 to May 2019, in both English and Spanish. In April 2019, volunteers conducted in-person intercept surveys on Sentinel Peak, to ensure that people using the park had a chance to weigh-in. Over 2,900 people took the survey.
