Bergfeld Park Culvert and Creek
In 1913 the City of Tyler purchased the land for Bergfeld Park. Starting in 1936, the Works Progress Administration made improvements to the park including a stone amphitheater, rock culverts, and a rock lined creek, restrooms, and tennis courts.
The city renovated the amphitheater in 2017 with a new stage and seating arrangement.
