Washington Park Pool – Casper WY

Description

The Civil Works Administration (CWA) constructed what was then known as the V.F.W. Pool at George Washington Park in Casper, Wyoming, in 1934. Work relief labor conducted additional development work at Washington Park.

Casper Star-Tribune, March 3, 1935, discussing work relief projects from 1934: “Within the park is the Veterans of Foreign Wars’ swimming pool and dressing-room building, the latter requiring an outlay of $15,978 last year.”

The status of the facility is unknown to Living New Deal.
