Formal Flowers

For whatever reason, Smith Park was, quite often, referred to as "City Park," in the media, especially in the early part of the 20th century.  Nevertheless, efforts were put into motion in 1930 to bring the park up to the standards by which we know and love it today.  Sounds like the Memorial Building, built just two years prior, was a big hit.

  1. I read in the article about a "wading pool" I have a vague memory as a child sitting on the rim of a small pool. Also walking in it. I thought that this might have been in the Smith park. Anyone have an idea if something like this was in the park, or has a photo of it if it was.
