History

One of the new wave of multi-use neighborhood parks during the City Beautiful movement, this property became a park due to a bond issue for parks and playground expansion approved by voters in 1919. The natatorium (swim facility) was constructed in 1925 along with two brick comfort stations. By 1926, tennis courts, horseshoe pits, and a ball field were added.

In 2020, Creston Park’s playground was fully renovated, including the addition of new accessibility features, with funding from the 2014 Parks Replacement Bond. An ADA-accessible pathway was installed from the SE 43rd Avenue parking lot to the playground. Other ADA improvements included a new drinking fountain and benches.
