Island Park Wading PoolWading pool in Island Park, Williamsville, NY
The Federal Writers’ Project’s guide to New York State states that the WPA constructed “a new village park” in Williamsville, New York by the name of Dream Island. The park “extends along Ellicott Creek.”
It is unclear exactly what land is encompassed by this project, though treed parkland extends along Ellicott Creek in Williamsville to this day.
