Long Description:
Glenwood Park is a city park located at W. Main Street and N. Ash Avenue. The park has walking trails and picnic facilities, as well as playground equipment.

In 1939, the WPA constructed tennis courts (no longer in existence), rock retaining walls, concrete footbridges, and stone drainage ditches. The retaining wall has vertical piers at the top, which served as parking "curbs" for street level parking. We noted a WPA shield engraved on a rock in the drainage ditch area.

This project was an example of recreational facilities constructed under the broad view of "useful" projects.
Project type: Park structure/building (other than lodge)

Date built or created: 1939
