Hi friends! Pima County's District 5 (D5) is rich in culture, history and the natural beauty of our Sonoran Desert. We are home to part of the Tucson Mountain Park and the Saguaro National Park, as well as many neighborhood parks.
We have so much public art and historical treasures in our district and put together a map of just a few of them for you! Whether you’re an avid hiker, an art enthusiast, or just trying to find a way to socialize outdoors, there is something for you.

Why Explore D5? & More Ways to Get Involved!
Explore D5 is meant to encourage everyone to get outdoors, especially in our own community! In the District 5 Strategic Planning Process, our committee highlighted the importance of getting outdoors and making it accessible for everyone in our community to do so. That's why D5 is created the Explore D5 map and web page detailing both the well-loved and hidden treasures in our community. This includes cultural, historical, and natural sites in D5. We want to make sure that they are accessible to everyone. These streets, la calle, the outdoors, belong to all of us.
We will also continue to partner with local sustainability, accessibility, and neighborhood groups to provide outdoor opportunities for the D5 community. Alternative modes of transportation to be as safe as possible is also critical in this effort. The more bicyclists out on the road, the safer the road will be for bicyclists! We encourage you to bike, walk, or use public transit to get to work or school. Check out the City of Tucson website for more information!
