Description

In 1936 the Works Progress Administration (WPA) constructed a wading pool in the “city park” in Scottsbluff. Living New Deal believes this to mean what is now known as Pioneer Park as the project is mentioned in conjunction with a museum that was another Pioneer Park project. The pool appears to no longer be extant.
