Blue Heron Park

Jonah Snelling, 3, of Medford, hits up the slide Thursday at the new playground at Blue Heron Park in Phoenix. 

The city of Phoenix has received a $50,000 grant to make Blue Heron Park ready for children and families this summer after a long recovery effort from the Almeda Fire.

“It’s a small win, but we’ll take it,” said Zac Moody, planning manager for the city and author of the grant application.
