The Franklin D. Roosevelt Bowl is nestled against the hills at Perris Hill Park. The bowl was built and dedicated in 1934 as part of the Federal Work Progress Administration (FWPA). This 1,800-seat outdoor amphitheater provides a historic and natural setting for a variety of events and programs such as: outdoor church services, musicals, plays and concerts, and is great a venue for fundraising events. The Bowl is surrounded by stately oaks, which provide shade for the open-air seating. The retainer wall is a beautiful mosaic of stone work and is a reflection of the architecture of the period as well as the labor-intensive style of F.W.P.A.
Over the years, The Bowl has had several improvements. In 1981, the old wooden-backed benches were replaced with aluminum seating and a new concrete stage was constructed in 1982 to replace the original wood stage. In addition, in 1983, restrooms and a concession building were added just outside The Bowl.
