New Mexico New Deal Sites June 2019 - Photo #212 - Santa Fe River Park and Don Gaspar Bridge

Santa Fe River Park. "Like many other New Deal projects, the Santa Fe River Park work used locally quarried limestone and other native materials. A quarter-mile east of the ... [Don Gaspar] Bridge, there's a wonderful natural-looking stone weir that creates a waterfall and a small pool below it ... an example of that kind of naturalistic landscaping that the CCC did."[1]
