imageCOLLEGE HILL PARK BATHHOUSE
304 S. Circle Dr.

Listed in National Register 4/16/2008
Architect: Edward Forsblom/WPA

The College Hill Park Bathhouse was nominated for its association with a "New Deal" agency and for its architecture. Constructed in 1937, the bathhouse was one of several area WPA projects. It is an example of how the city's parks department was able to continue development in Wichita and provide work during the depression with the help of federal funds and programs. The bathhouse is also a prime example of the Spanish Colonial Revival architectural style as applied to a park building.
