Park Development – Barre VT

Description

The municipal park at the end of Mill Street, alongside Parkside Terrace, in Barre, Vermont, was developed and improved with the assistance of federal funds and labor in 1934. According to a town report work attributable in part to the Federal/Vermont Emergency Relief Administration included:

[A]n addition to the cement pier being built at the swimming pool, the construction of a third tennis court, equipping same, and painting the bath houses. … [F]rom V. E. R. A. funds, the City Street Department greatly improved the approach to the field by working and graveling Mill Street, thus making easy and safe access to the field via this street.
