In 1935, there was a request from the surrounding community to add recreation elements to the park. The recreation area was built as a complex in the southeast corner of City Park. It contained a multipurpose building or bathhouse with concession stand, wading pool, ball field with grandstands, an announcer’s tower, three tennis courts, horseshoe courts and shuffle board courts. Construction began on the complex in 1938 and was built by Work Progress Administration (WPA) workers who used the same sandstone rock as other projects throughout the park. In the late 1950s, the city reconfigured the recreation area in City Park due to the popularity of baseball and tennis. The old wading pool and ball field were removed from the southeast corner and relocated to the southwest side of the park. There two ball fields and a larger swimming pool were built. By the 1960s the tennis facilities were expanded from four tennis courts to eight courts. In 1970s, the tennis courts were expanded because of the tennis boom throughout the country. Nine additional courts were constructed to complete the complex for a total of seventeen courts.
