Quechan Nation welcomes community to $1.2M nature park

The Quechan Nation celebrated the opening of Sunrise Point Park, a nature park on the Arizona portion of the reservation.

The park is called Anya-Nitz-Pak in the Quechan language. The $1.2 million project features a lake for swimming, fishing, two ramadas, a plaza, an amphitheater, and an Elder Village.

The tribe began work on the park in 2008. Funds came from the state of Arizona, the city of Yuma and the Bureau of Reclamation.
