Steele Indian School park was built for two reasons: 1) as a boarding school for Native American children from 1891-1990. The school was known for it's marching band (building shown is the Band building) 2) because "city dwellers need passive, open green space in city centers to serve as a refuge from the physical confinement of urban living." One population was confined there, one population found refuge there.
