“The Works Progress Administration, an agency of the Federal Government, adopted as one of its projects the improvement of Hanes Park, which is a public park and playground owned by the city of Winston-Salem. Within the park is located an elementary school, the high school gymnasium, baseball diamond, a football field, a race track, bridges and walks, and other park improvements.
