Description

Cazenovia Park and the nearby South Park in Buffalo were designed by Frederick Law Olmsted in the late 19th century. Improvements to the park continued throughout the early 1900s. In 1935, the WPA built a pedestrian suspension bridge across a creek in the Cazenovia Park golf course. The WPA photo pictured here also shows a swimming pool listed as being “South Park Swimming Pool – Cazenovia Park.” This may well be the swimming pool in Cazenovia Park, which was also constructed in 1935.
