WPA Project No. 65-3-2426, App. Date 11-4-35, $780, “Construction of rock wall around Antioch City Park.”
WPA Project No. 65-3-2426, App. Date 2-8-36, $430, “Const. of rock wall with reinforced concrete foundations. (Additional)”
From the Google street view, it looks as if the wall is still in good condition. Some attention to design seems to have been the designers goal. A seating bench is incorporated into the southwest corner, and a long alcove for a flower bed is in the north section.
