Kissena Park Golf Course – Flushing NY

Description

This golf course at Kissena Park in outer Queens was one of several golf courses created with federal funding under Robert Moses’ tenure as Parks Commissioner. The Department of Parks first announced the opening of the course in August 1935. Another Department press release in May 1936 announced the opening of the Kissena Park golf course again, suggesting that there was likely further work done in the meantime. The 1936 release further noted that the work was completed “with relief funds provided by the C.W.A., T.E.R.A. and W.P.A.”
