Of interest is the construction of four park entrance motifs, 13 feet high. Two of logs and of rustic design are to be placed at the south and west entrances. Now rustic signs will be placed in the park headquarters area, designating the Castle Crest wild flower gardens administration buildings and other points of interest.

Four new wooden cabins for employees will be constructed near park headquarters.

Landscaping of park headquarters and the rim area will be continued under the direction of Francis G. Lange, landscape architect.

A new flagpole will be erected, a new drinking fountain built and roads oiled in the neighborhood of the administration building.
