Jeff Lee Park

park
Located on Third Street and Fillmore Avenue this small 3-acre neighborhood and community park contains Jeff Lee Pool, the City’s large swimming pool, restrooms and concession, play equipment, and ample parking.  This park sits adjacent to McAlester Public School's football stadium.

Key-hole shaped, the Jeff Lee Park swimming pool measures 175 feet lone and 60 feet wide and is constructed of poured concrete.  The Jeff Lee Park Bath House and Pool are significant because they reflect the wide variety of  construction projects, in this instance outdoor recreational facilities, which the  WPA undertook to sponsor.  For the agency, swimming pools and bath houses were "useful."  Because there were not all that many pools constructed by the WPA, Jeff Lee Park is distinctive.  It is also significant because construction of it provided jobs to persons who had been on relief rolls, enabling them to support their families and regain confidence in themselves.
