Lake Cisco-Area Park Improvements – Cisco TX

Description

Among the Works Progress Administration (WPA) projects identified as completed in a Abilene Daily Reporter article from June 14, 1936 was “park Improvements” in Cisco, Texas. “Lake Improvements consisted of clearing the creek channel below the dam and swimming pool, lining the channel with rock, terracing banks of the creek, and building walks, drives, and a small bridge. Twenty-five men were employed for six months. Total expenditure was $5,000.”

Living New Deal believes this to be a reference to Lake Cisco.
