In the northern part of town you can find the Fort Lowell Historic Site and Museum. Camp Lowell was established in 1860 to protect the rsidents of Tucson, and became Fort Lowell in 1873. Today there are some remains and a museum in the reconstructed Officer's Quarters. The park also has a swimming pool, various sports areas, and a small pond with a fountain. It is a very popular spot and offers a variety of activities in addition to the historical value.
