The Works Progress Administration (WPA) constructed comfort stations (restrooms) and, Living New Deal believes, picnic areas in Oakdale Park.
According to a Salina Parks and Recreation Master Plan Overview, the city is looking to replace the comfort stations, as the “current 1930’s WPA restrooms are not ADA, and are deteriorating.”
