South Park is a neighborhood of Tucson with a rich history. The area was first settled in the 1940s when African-Americans coming from southwestern United States first moved to the city. Because of segregation, African-Americans had restricted rights to own land, but South Park was one of the only two urban areas where they were allowed to purchase lots.

With little money on hand, the new residents were forced to purchase building materials and live in tents while their permanent dwellings were being built. These struggles helped to develop a strong sense of community as residents tried their best to pull through adversity. In 1960, South Park became a close-knit neighborhood and a few African-American-run businesses were found scattered along South Park Avenue.

Since 1990, South Park is steadily revitalizing with new housing options on the horizon. The South Park Avenue Improvement Project also involved several projects such as improving landscaping, building sidewalk and curb access ramps and enhancing the street-scape along South Park Avenue with totems and artistic bus shelters.

South Park now has Quincie Douglas Park and a neighborhood center with a community swimming pool. The Quincie Douglas library, off East 36th Street, boasts a 10,000-square-foot standalone library featuring more than 60,000 items.

Parents of school-age children can take advantage of the vicinity of Holladay Intermediate Magnet School, for grades 3, 4, and 5. The school offers computer labs, access to basketball courts and possibility to engage in track and field sports.
