Description

The Civil Works Administration (CWA) completed improvements at Riverbank Park in Westbrook ME.

“Riverbank Improved by C. W. A. Project

The C.W.A. project for improving Riverbank, and greatly appreciated by the Trustees, consisted in the closing of the unsightly dump on the bank of the river and establishing of a new city dump at the foot of Foster Street. A large amount of filling required was moved by trucks in the winter to grade the river bank, also to build a road-way across the gully at the new city dump. The grading, fertilizing and seeding of the improved section was done by the Park and Cemetery Crew, and paid for out of the Park Appropriation. Late in the fall the two houses on the Park were given a coat of paint by F.E.R.A. painters, the cost of stock to be paid for out of Park Funds.”
