Landscape engineer's conception of the formal gardens at Woodland ParkSource: Big Timber Pioneer, Jul. 15, 1937.
Montana’s Big Timber Pioneer newspaper reported in April 1937:
“Woodland park, a $600,000 WPA project, will be completed in June, Mayor J. P. Bruckhauser was recently advised. The project consists of improvement work on an established park.”
On July 15, 1937, the same paper reported on the completed work:
“Among the 11 large projects comprising the WPA civic-center program in Montana upon which $676,641.12 has been expended, is the civic-center park at Kalispell. Known as Woodland Park, this beautifully developed 30 acre area now contains a concrete swimming pool, rustic club house, lagoons, roads, bridges, winter sports area, landscaped picic and park grounds and large rock and formal gardens. The landscape engineer’s conception of the formal garden is pictured here.”
