The Town of Clifton was founded back in 1873 following the discovery of rich deposits of copper in the surrounding areas. North Clifton was a neighborhood which paralleled the San Francisco River and lined Frisco Avenue with Tall trees intermixed within the Victorian-style homes. Many families who lived in North Clifton were fourth generation and enjoyed their neighborhood. In the 1983, the hundred year flood took a devastating toll on the neighborhood. Unable to put residents back in harms way of flood waters, an idea for a park was conceived through a partnership with the U. S. Corps of Engineers, State of Arizona and the Town of Clifton. Residents were relocated and work began on a project that meant to be an economic development tool for the historical mining town of Clifton.
