TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - A state park northeast of Tucson will soon be open seven days a week after it previously closed due to budget cuts.

The Arizona Daily Star reports (https://bit.ly/2mbMhKb ) that Oracle State Park will be open seven days a week starting Wednesday, March 1. The park closed in 2009 and later reopened only on weekends.

The park, named for the nearby town of Oracle, offers oak grassland landscapes, hiking trails and the historic Kannally Ranch House.

Arizona State Parks and Trails Executive Director Sue Black says Oracle can reopen daily in part because state parks have been doing well with attendance and revenue.

Black says management of the park has also changed, making it easier to open the park daily.
