The Works Progress Administration (WPA) conducted a project “the clearing and grubbing of land on the eastern edge of the Burnside Avenue Playground and installation of drives and walks.” Furthermore, the WPA installed a “new drinking fountain … at the Burnside Avenue Plavground near the tennis courts. This was done in connection with the laying of a new six-inch water feed line for filling the wading pool.”
The park in question is unclear to Living New Deal.
