Marine Park Shelter – Ellis

Marine Park grounds were designated by North Fort Worth for park use in 1892; the land was acquired by Fort Worth when annexation occurred in 1909. The park served as the meeting place for workers during the packing house strike of 1904. Grounds were improved during the 1935-37 Works Progress Administration program carried out at a number of city parks. This stuccoed concrete structure is of rectangular plan; solid end blocks containing public restrooms flank a central open breezeway under a hip roof.
