There was an interesting article in the Peoria Republic for the weekend of October 2, 2010.
The community in north Peoria, Terramar, is finally getting the park that was promised years ago when the community was being built. The Palo Verde Park will be located near 73rd Avenue and Terramar Blvd. The hold up was due to fact that the parcel of land contained an area that was the site of a "pit-house" from the Hohokam tribe. When Terramar was planned the city was unaware that the area contained an archaeological site. The site has been excavated so in the next few weeks construction will begin. The city's plan is to include an interpretive trail explaining the archaeological significance of the area.
