Earl Ruth Park – Parlier CA

Description

WPA Proj. No. 646-02-2-300, $2,200, June 7, 1938.

“Make improvements to the City Park in the city of Parlier, Fresno County, including constructing restroom with utility connections, wading pool, swings, sand boxes, and other recreational facilities; grading and oiling roads; landscaping; removing and transplanting trees; and performing appurtenant and incidental work. City-owned property. In addition to projects specifically approved.”

Total Federal and sponsor funds $3,100, average employed 19.

During a February 2018 site visit, the WPA built toilets appeared to be non functional. Newer toilets were located on the other side of the park. There was no wading pool and swings. Most likely, these facilities became dysfunctional and were removed in order to reduce the tax burden.
