TWEETS FROM THE PARK:

CITY PARK FACTS:

City Park would not be the place it is today without President RooseveltĂ­s Works Progress Administration efforts during the Great Depression. More than 20,000 men and women were employed to build bridges, roads, fountains, the Botanical Garden and Tad Gormley stadium, and to dig more 11 miles of lagoons - work all done by hand.
