Himmel Park Beautification Project 2014

This is a project initiated by three residents of the Sam Hughes midtown neighborhood: Denice Blake, Betty Guarraia, and Susan Peters. In an effort to meet our objective to spend a small amount of the resources from the biennual home tour, we first came up with four guiding principles that would ultimately benefit midtown neighborhoods: high visibility, aesthetic appeal, education, and collaboration. To meet those objectives, we have selected Himmel Park Library for external beautification.

Why this project?

The library is a brick structure that anchors the popular midtown Himmel Park.  The building itself has very recently undergone interior remodeling.  The 52-year old library, the oldest branch in the Pima County Library System, is extremely well-used at approximately 25,000 door entries per month.  The library sits on a corner with all four sides visible from two streets. See the rest of the Himmel Park Beautification story...




A Garden Tour through Sam Hughes National Historic District Sunday, April 6, 2014.

The Garden Tour was a self-guided walking tour (approximately a two mile loop to visit all sites on foot). The Sam Hughes neighborhood is bounded by Speedway/Country Club/Broadway/Campbell. The neighborhood is named after Sam Hughes Elementary School, a historic property built in the Spanish Eclectic Style. The neighborhood school still serves as the heart of this vibrant historic community.

Proceeds from the tour benefit the endeavors of the Sam Hughes Neighborhood Association. The tour featured 7 private residences, 2 public properties, and a demonstration site for the Sam Hughes Neighborhood "first in the nation" neighborhood phenology trail. Phenology is the study of the timing of plant and animal life cycles.

The garden tour's title sponsors, Solar Solution AZ, LLC, 520-471-1866 and Oasis Water Harvesting, 520-234-7681, were available during the garden tour to answer all of your solar energy and rain water harvesting questions. The gardens and outdoor spaces featured a variety of elements including water harvesting, solar, water features, xeriscape, hardscape, a backyard chicken coop, raised beds, a certified wildlife habitat garden, a hummingbird garden, gazing balls, outdoor cooking areas, and use of color, sculptures, and recycled materials.

Sam Hughes Neighborhood Association Members attended free of charge!

Sincere appreciation to the homeowners who so graciously opened their gardens and to our sponsors:Solar Solution AZ, LLC and Oasis Water Harvesting. Also the volunteers who gave their energy and time, Sam Hughes Elementary School Principal Janet Jordan, supporting donor Rosati's Pizza, and the Sam Hughes Neighborhood Association.
