Residents will soon have another reason to visit "A" Mountain.

The city is wrapping up $320,000 in improvements to the park's signs, trails and more.

Work began in January and should be completed within the next few weeks.

The improvements mark the end of the first phase of a master plan the city adopted in 2010.

An additional $2.5 million worth of improvements could be on the way if the proposal makes it through the Pima County Bond Advisory Committee and then is approved by voters in November 2014.

But for now, Councilwoman Regina Romero encourages residents to enjoy one of Tucson's finest resources by attending a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Aug. 1 to celebrate both the completed work and Tucson's birthday month.

"Sentinel Peak is an iconic place for Tucsonans - rich in history and open to everyone," Romero said in a press release. "We want people to bring their out-of-town guests to enjoy the views, stay to learn the history and go for a hike, and then go downtown, both the east and west sides, for fabulous food and entertainment."
