(Phoenix, AZ – March 18, 2010) – “After an unprecedented series of meetings with rural communities, the Arizona State Parks Board today voted to allow staff to enter into agreements to keep four State Parks open into the future although three would be managed by other entities. Two more agreements will extend the closure dates for Tonto Natural Bridge State Park and Roper Lake State Park,” said Executive Director Renee Bahl.

“Management agreements are pending for the Town of Camp Verde and would keep Fort Verde State Historic Park open for one year. The City of Yuma has proposed that they would manage Yuma Territorial Prison State Historic Park for three years. The City of Tombstone would manage Tombstone Courthouse State Historic Park for three years. The Arizona Historical Society agreement would keep Riordan Mansion State Historic Park open for three years.”
