Hillcrest Recreation Center - Washington DC
In 1942, the Washington Post reported the approval of $40,270 in funding for the Federal Works Administration (FWA) to build and/or make improvements to the Hillcrest Recreation Center. This was the largest sum appropriated for parks work in the Lanham Act.
Exactly what was done is unknown to us, but the facility has a recreation hall, tennis courts (at another location), and a putting green. The present Hillcrest Recreation Center dates from the early 2000s.
