Levin's Park is also worthy of some description, having been for many years a very popular resort in Tucson. Here the San Augustine fiestas were held, celebration of both American and Mexican independence, and was the scene of many a revelry. It was the constant care and pride of Alexander Levin, who set out the rows of trees, and watched their growth from slender saplings to trees of great height ana size.
The entire area of the park, about seven acres, was shaded by their foliage. Benches and tables were provided for the guests, and refreshments furnished from a restaurant on the grounds. A high fence made it safe from improper intrusion, and a gatekeeper held the premises in charge. A skating rink, shooting gallery, bowling alley and dancing pavilion were prominent attractions. Music was discoursed every evening by a first-class string band, and concerts every Sunday afternoon were much frequented. Its pleasant shade and cool breezes were blessings in this village on the Santa Cruz, and a visit to Tucson was not considered complete without taking in the old mission, Levin's Park and Fort Lowell, which as long as invested by the military, divided honors with the park as a resort for the social set of early timers.
