Description

At Evans Park the WPA and the City of Reno built a circular cement wading pool fifty feet in diameter. A sprinkling system was installed and gravel walks laid out. Today the park which sits just to the south of the University of Nevada, Reno is a grassy lawn with horseshoe pits. Students are found there enjoying the space.
