Gregg Park is found on the National Register of Historic Places. It is historically significant because of its architecture, which includes a limestone shelter house and a sophisticated grandstand that hail back to the days of the Works Progress Administration (WPA).
The WPA came about as part of the Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal work program. Under the program, hundreds of workers in Indiana banded together to construct Gregg Park. In its heyday, the park was a popular spot for sporting events, gatherings of families and friends, and other recreational activities. Today, visitors can enjoy Gregg Park's peaceful surroundings and historic structures free of charge.
