Description

The Works Progress Administration built the Municipal Swimming Pool in Tucson.

The exact location and condition of this facility is unknown to the Living New Deal.

Additional contributor note, August 2018: The Tucson Municipal Pool is likely the same facility as the pool located at Himmel Park. The park was built roughly the same year as the pool. The WPA worked on other projects in the part of town where the pool is located. Many of the sidewalks in the vicinity of the pool bear the WPA stamp with 1930s dates.
