Located in the Sam Hughes neighborhood, Himmel Park dates to 1944. Its swimming pool area includes a wading pool and a nice ramada. The original pool dates to 1936 and has undergone a renovation to retain elements of its original design.
A Tucson-Pima County public library is located at the northeast corner of the park.
This 26.36-acre park also contains basketball courts, tennis courts, soccer fields, playground areas, and an exercise course. Several memorial pieces and a public art piece adorn the park, as well as a tall avenue of palm trees and a smaller avenue of olive trees. Special event areas are available for rental. Many family picnics, social gatherings, and small festivals take place in the park. The site is additionally used for elementary and middle school cross-country teams, and the fields are used by soccer teams during tournament season. Himmel Park is one of the neighborhood's and City's most loved parks.
