Description

The Works Progress Administration (WPA) built a new city park for the small town of Darby, Montana in 1937-38. The park is next to the city hall and city museum on South Main Street.  It has been improved and well maintained over the years.

On Google maps it is labeled as “Main City Park”, but the sign at the park only says “City Park”.
