Himmel Park Station can be found in one of Tucson’s oldest neighbourhoods, Sam Hughes.
Deployed in November 2017, this SMART station has already accumulated over 3,000 rides! What’s a SMART station you ask? SMART Stations are bike stations without the kiosk – meaning all transactions have to take place through our app CycleFinder! Named after one of Tucson’s founding fathers, this community holds great significance to the city as a National Historic District. Once one of Tucson’s very first subdivision, Sam Hughes is now quiet leafy streets lined with mid-century modern homes and a buzzing student scene. Whether you are a history buff, architecture admirer or foodie, Sam Hughes is one neighbourhood you need to explore.
There’s plenty to do near Himmel Park Station, including shopping at the Rincon Market, eating at PJ Subs, enjoying the patio at Bob Dobb’s or getting beautified at R Salon Day Spa! You can also check out Tumerico Vegetarian Restaurant or Seven Cups Fine Chinese Teas if you want to try something new! Get a haircut at Studio B Designs or Gentleman’s Choice Barber Shop.
Stay tuned for next month’s Station Spotlight. Who knows, we could feature your neighbourhood next!
