Ottawa Park Amphitheater
Project type: Amphitheaters, Parks and Recreation
Completed: 1936View Project in a Separate Window
“The historic Amphitheater in Ottawa Park was WPA constructed in 1935-1936. It is located on a sloping piece of ground surrounded by trees in a bird sanctuary section of the park. The 500 tons of stone came from a quarry near Whitehouse. The small scrubs and trees planted then are now nearly 100 feet tall! Over the years the seating area has been rebuilt, a handicap accessible ramp added, a stage with backdrops, electricity, and a storage facility. It holds about 750 people. It is the only venue for free open air concerts in this area.”
