CASA GRANDE -- The lights are now on at the newest community attraction in Casa Grande — the Neon Sign Park.
The light switch was officially flipped at the park in Arizona Plaza, 408 N. Sacaton St., during a public celebration ceremony Saturday evening.
The park pays tribute to the neon and classic signs that once graced the Casa Grande and Arizona business landscape.
“It’s hard to put into words what I believe this park will mean to the community,” said Rina Rien, director of Casa Grande Main Street. “I am optimistic and encouraged by the buzz being created surrounding the park and how we are already translating it into a strategic vision for revitalizing our downtown.”
A joint project between Casa Grande Main Street and the city of Casa Grande Historic Preservation Commission, the new park features 14 signs that have been salvaged and restored.
