    The CCC improvements listed under the Lake Worth Improvements include the ones at the Fort Worth Nature Center (Lone/Cactus Point, Broadview, Rest Awhile but not Mosque Point which is outside the boundaries of the Nature Center). The Nature Center wasn’t officially created until 1964 so to say that the CCC created it is misleading.
