I initially made fun of the concept, primarily because of the proposed location for the park: Eloy, Arizona, a small city that lies alongside a stretch of the I-17 South between Phoenix and Tucson. It’s never exactly been a haven for tourists.

But proponents and supporters are apparently taking the park very seriously, as yesterday, the park proposition (Senate Bill 1450) passed with a 17-9 vote. The legislation already passed earlier this year with a 17-11 vote, but was struck down 39-17 in the House of Representatives after the bill was amended.
The bill now heads to the Governor’s office, where Janet Napolitano will decide its fate. We’ll keep you posted.
