Picnic table, benches, and fire pit in Brackenridge Park
Between 1938 and 1940 the WPA constructed 19 concrete and stone picnic tables, benches, and fire pits in Brackenridge Park. They are nestled among the trees along Tuleta Drive, just south of the Joske Pavilion. The concrete pads and stone water fountains were added at a later date.
Page 13 of the 2011 nomination form mentions the picnic area being built by the WPA.
