Castle amphitheater - Provo UT
The Works Progress Administration (WPA) built an extensive Recreation Center on the grounds of the Utah State Hospital for the mentally handicapped. The recreation center is popularly known as the “Provo Castle” or Castle Amphitheater. It includes an 800-seat stone amphitheater with attached interior rooms and a grass-covered play area on a 3-acre site. The original intention was to build a much larger recreational facility for the hospital, but that plan was never realized.
The Provo Castle is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is still used for public events.
