Wintersmith Park is located at 18th St. and Scenic Drive, Ada, OK - 

150 acre park with many recreational opportunities. 

The park is named for Frances Wintersmith.  It is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.  It was built in 1933-1934 as a part of the New Deal work program during the Great Depression.  Workers built the lake, a lodge available for rental, bridges, trails and a public amphitheater.   The amphitheater has recently been restored.  The park also has a swimming pool, small train, merry-go-round, picnic pavilions and tables, horseshoe tossing area, an arboretum, an old school house and cabin.  At Christmas time there is an excellent lighting display around the park.  The architect for this project was Charles E. Kroeger. 

Wintersmith Lodge can be rented out for reunions, weddings, and other functions.  To reserve the Lodge call (580) 436-8101 at Ada City Hall.
