Estabrook Park – Milwaukee WI

Description

Estabrook park was one of many parks in Milwaukee County to receive extensive improvements from the CCC or the WPA in the 1930s. Work by the CCC at Estabrook Park included the removal of “about 100,000 cubic yards of rock from the bed of the Milwaukee River at Estabrook Park. The rock was crushed and used for roads and dam construction.” The CCC also “[c]onstructed a flood control dam at Estabrook Park, including a rock spillway and flood control gates, separated by a small island.”
