This beautiful park offers a great piece of Tucson history—the ruins of the former Camp Lowell. Stroll around the park while Little Leaguers practice on the diamonds and kids clamber over the playground. Take a soccer ball on a fall afternoon and enjoy a friendly game on one of the big grassy fields. If you need to cool down, there’s also a public pool here. If you’re craving a waterfront view, take a seat and relax a while alongside the lake. BodyZen Boot Camp hosts a morning and evening class here. To learn a little more about its history, visit the Fort Lowell Historical Museum on Friday or Saturday. The museum is open 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
