Description

There are multiple facilities in the park – an amphitheater with a NYA marker 1937-38, an unmarked 2 room community center dedicated in 1939 (newspaper article), two park entrance gates, retaining walls with steps, picnic tables and benches, a covered picnic area, and a bathhouse for the swimming pool. While only the amphitheater and community center have documentation, I believe the other items are also the work of the NYA.
