Town Creek Park

Town Creek Park is located between Town Creek and 1st Avenue adjoining the Maddox Middle School Campus, featuring a rock walking bridge built in the 1930's as a WPA project** and a playground area. This park has been used in several ways over the years, including a picnic area, flower garden and even a small student golf course.

 

** In 1935, the Work Project Administration was formed through an executive order from President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. The project was designed to create jobs during the Great Depression. Harry L. Hopkins was chosen to head up the program. He established two divisions of the WPA. The building program (which constructed public buildings, bridges and improved roadways) and the art program which included the Federal Art Project , the Federal Writers' Project, and the Federal Theatre Project. These programs were designed to create work in all 48 states . In their time, these programs were known by many names. Today, people commonly use the umbrella term for all these branches—WPA—to describe works of visual art created under the Federal Art Project.
