Any tiny bit of shade is very welcome now in Tucson. We are firmly in the triple digits and it is HOT! Soon the monsoons will arrive and cool things down. But in the meantime, Agua Caliente Park offers some greenery, some shade, and some quiet, too.
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
