El Paso & Southwestern Greenway Description

Only a tiny portion of the El Paso & Southwestern Greenway is currently open in Tucson. Built as part of the development of the city's Fire Central building (a large and modern fire station that replaced an earlier station nearby), the paved trail primarily serves as an example of what the planned trail extensions will look like.

Eventually, the El Paso & Southwestern Greenway will continue both north and south on a former El Paso & Southwestern Railroad corridor, connecting downtown Tucson with the community of South Tucson and the Kino Sports Complex via a 6-mile route.

Parking and Trail Access

There are no official parking areas for the open portion of the El Paso & Southwestern Greenway, but ample parking is available along local streets. Be sure to obey any posted parking restrictions.

El Paso & Southwestern Greenway Reviews


This trail starts right next to the fire station with a little dedication area to the barrio that was there before Tucson urbanized the area. The "trail" is a paved 2 lane walkway with benches and nice landscaping. Once you come upon the old railroad tracks there's another interactive area giving the history of the railroads that ran through the area. As you round the corner, there is a cute gazebo and a mural. This is a nice place to learn some Tucson history.
