PARK AND RECREATION DEPARTMENT. 



COMMISSIONERS' REPORT. 



Hon. James M. Curley, 

Mayor of the City of Boston: 

Dear Sir, — The Board of Park and Recreation 
Commissioners herewith presents the annual report for 
the year 1913-14. 

Owing to the retirement of the former Board the 
compiling of this report has devolved upon the present 
Board and therefore is respectfully submitted. 

John H. Dillon, Chairman. 
Charles Gibson. 
Thomas F. Galvin. 



REPORT OF THE DEPUTY COMMISSIONER. 



To John H. Dillon, Charles Gibson and Thomas F. 
Galvin, Commissioners: 

Gentlemen, — I herewith submit a report of work 
performed in the department during the year ending 
January 31, 1914. 

During the first month of the year the consolidation 
of the Park, Public Grounds, Bath and Music Depart- 
ments into the Park and Recreation Department 
became an established fact and all employees of these 
four departments by virtue of the city ordinance and 
a vote of the new Board became legal employees of the 
new department. 

The election of the secretary and a deputy commis- 
sioner followed immediately. These appointments 
received the sanction of the Civil Service Commissioners. 

This report will cover as briefly as possible all matters 
of interest. 

The improvements on Boston Common were con- 
tinued in the neighborhood of the Parkman memorial 
bandstand, a contract being let for 18,250, including 
soil renovation, drainage and laying of brick walks. 

At Franklin Park the improvements to the Zoo con- 
sisted of the addition of three ranges for buffalo, deer 
and elk, the establishment of a raccoon cage in Long 
Crouch Woods, under two contracts, one for $1,736.25 
for the cage, and one for sewer and water service 
amounting to $1,074.50. The floor of the duck pond 
was concreted, contract price $2,090. 

Sanitary accommodations at the bird house were 
provided for under contract price of $7,994. 



7 

The bridge over the railroad at Charlesgate West, 
at the entrance to the Fens, having settled at the 
abutments, a contract was made to raise it for $6,700; 
the necessary changes in the approaches of both street 
and walks and the side walls were made by the depart- 
ment force. 

The new shelter and sanitary at the boat landing at 
Jamaica Pond, erected at a cost of $18,696.10, were 
completed and opened to the public. 

At Governor's Island a flight of granite steps was 
built from the upper concourse to the landing on the 
upper promenade, and this promenade was graded and 
surfaced with stone for a distance of about 800 feet, 
behind the bastions and as far as the citadel itself. The 
walks from the wharf leading to the upper concourse 
were planted with two rows of English elms on each 
side and this planting was carried on by the upper 
promenade, and the line trees were flanked by groups 
of silver and Carolina poplars. 

At Copp's Hill terrace a contract was made for the 
erection of a sanitarj^ and shelter building and a con- 
crete terrace floor to be used as a play space for children; 
the amount was $16,786. 

The sanitary building for children at the Prince 
Street Playground was finished and opened for use. 

Iron fences were erected at Concord and Rutland 
squares at a contract price of $3,674. 

At Tyler Street Playground a contract was made to 
erect a shelter and pergola and an iron fence and grade 
the playground, price $10,835; this work was completed 
but the playground is still of little use as the municipal 
building adjoining is unfinished. The tile roof of the 
shelter and pergola is not suited for this class of work 
and should be substituted by other roofing material in 
all future buildings of this nature. 

Orchard Park improvements were carried on under 



8 

three contracts: Grading, drainage, walks and wading 
pool, $5,868.95; iron fences and railings, $1,757.10; 
shelter, $3,221. 

At Wood Island Park a new bath house to replace 
the old one burned was erected at a price of $15,450. 

At Rutherford Avenue Playground in Charlestown, 
contract was made for a locker building, price $11,687. 

At Mystic Playground a fence was erected along the 
sea wall at the price of $898. 

The grading of this playground was completed on con- 
tract price of $1,525.75. 

The Norfolk Street Playground in Dorchester was 
improved by the erection of a locker building, price 
$13,594; a contract was let for the grading of the ball 
field, price $8,639.10. 

The small playground in Charlestown adjoining 
Dewey Beach, improved by grading and fencing and 
the erection of a sanitary building; contract unfinished; 
price, $20,286. 

At Carolina Avenue Playground in Jamaica Plain a 
small locker building is under construction, the con- 
tract price of which is $8,765. 

The department acquired land as follows during the 
year: A playground in Ward 19 with land on both sides 
of Phillips street, containing in all about 2\ acres taken 
by right of eminent domain. 

The area of Savin Hill bathing beach was increased 
by the taking of land adj oining the present holdings of 
the department; the area acquired contains 65,053 
square feet of upland and 551,000 square feet of flats. 

At Hyde Park the department acquired 20 acres of 
marsh land for playground purposes by transfer from 
the Metropolitan Park Commission. The location is 
commonly known as Smith's Pond and would be of 
great value if it included the high ground on the east- 
erly side of the marsh bordering on Brainard street ; the 
material in this bank would be used in filling the low 



9 

land; this, however, the Metropolitan Commission was 
unwilling to transfer. A tract of land near the Neponset 
river, containing about three acres, was presented to the 
department by William H. Wood. 

The department force was engaged, in addition to the 
regular maintenance work, on various kinds of work for 
which special appropriations were available; among 
these I might mention grading and leveling of the 
newly purchased playground, Ward 19; fencing John 
Winthrop Playground; grading, drainage and surfacing 
of additional tennis courts at Franklin Field; erection of 
grandstand at speedway on Franklin Field; grading, 
drainage, loaming and planting Portsmouth Street Play- 
ground; grading and fencing Paris Street Playground; 
loaming and planting Billings Field; location of perma- 
nent concrete post seats at Marine Park, Massachusetts 
avenue, Washington Park, Madison Park, Meeting 
House Hill, Sullivan square, Columbus circle, Olmsted 
and Franklin Parks. 

Temporary walks were laid out at Franklin Park to 
accommodate the great crowds of people visiting the 
Zoo. 

The permanent walks around the bird house, the fly- 
ing cage and the duck pond were built, and the planting 
of the island and shores of the duck pond completed 
during the year. 

The bird house was formally opened to the public on 
Columbus Day, and the ceremony was largely attended. 

At Franklin Field the playground for children was 
regraded and additional swings and tilts erected. 

The usual cooperation with the School Department 
was carried on in connection with the children's corners 
and the installation of new apparatus both at these 
corners and at the schoolyard playgrounds was made by 
our force of mechanics. 

The one pressing problem of the year was, of course, 
the deterioration of the road surfaces. 



10 

This was notably so on Commonwealth avenue, 
between Beacon street and Brighton avenue, where 
during the two previous seasons a stretch of bituminous 
macadam was laid down, and one year's wear showed 
conclusively that such treatment was not fitted for that 
kind of traffic. This road surface while quite satisfac- 
tory for automobile traffic will not stand up under heavy 
teaming; in fact, it is quite clear that only granite or 
wood block pavement can stand the latter use. 

Planting was carried on at Franklin Park where about 
600 coniferous trees were set out at Pine Hill, Juniper 
Hill and the Wilderness; 200 poplars were planted in the 
vicinity of the bear dens and bird house; 100 oaks 
through the plantation at Franklin Park; 50 English 
elms were planted in prepared pits on the site of the 
proposed Greeting; 300 Cornus Florida were planted in 
the Wilderness and at Scarboro Hill. The rhododendron 
plantation at Ward's Pond was extended and the shores 
of the Riverway and Fens were planted with many kinds 
of iris and with lythrum, hibiscus and other semi- 
aquatics. 

In addition there were planted at Chestnut Hill Park 
and upper Commonwealth avenue 200 oaks and 150 
other trees. Playgrounds planted were Portsmouth 
Street, John Winthrop and Billings Field. 

At the Strandway white willows were planted around 
the shelter, at the children's corner and in the reserva- 
tion near the Columbia Yacht Club. 

At Governor's Island 500 trees were planted along the 
concourse and promenade. 

Highland Park was extended by the purchase of one 
acre of ground at the corner of Fort avenue and Beach 
Glen street, price $10,000. 

Respectfully submitted, 

James B. Shea, 
Deputy Commissioner.

REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF 
BATHS. 



To John H. Dillon, Charles Gibson and Thomas F. 
Galvin, Commissioners: 

Gentlemen, — I beg to submit herein a report of the 
activities of this department for the year ending January 
31, 1914. 

The close of the fiscal year just ended marks the first 
completion of all the activities that are conducted in a 
calendar year since the consolidation of the former Park, 
Public Grounds, Bath and Music Departments of the 
city into the present organization. The merging of 
these four units, more or less interdependent, into one 
department or clearing house has resulted in a more 
cohesive system with its attendant harmony of action. 
Plans and their fruition are more easy of accomplish- 
ment, for the end and the means are now under one 
directing body. The administration of the public play- 
grounds, gymnasia and baths and their correlative 
activities, as a consequence, is now rendered smooth and 
free from delays. 

The year just closed was a fruitful one, as the features 
incident to the recreation branch of the department 
were carried out to a successful conclusion. The gym- 
nasium work from October to March and the playground 
program from June to September, with its list of athletic 
games and swimming events, enlisted the healthy interest 
of thousands of our citizens of both sexes and all ages- 
The efficiency of the indoor baths throughout the year 
was attested by the thousands that had recourse to their 
benefits. The summer season, from June 15 to Septem- 
ber 15, saw the eight beaches and eleven floating baths 



12 

situated throughout the city thronged daily during the 
warm weather, and on many occasions, despite the unex- 
celled advantages which the city affords its citizens in 
this respect, their number and facilities proved far 
inadequate to meet the demand. 

The department, as is customary, held a series of 
swimming races for boys and girls at all the beaches — 
every section was provided for and all had an opportu- 
nity in their sectional baths to prove their merit in com- 
petition for the handsome prizes which the department 
awarded to the first three place winners in each event. 
The winners in the preliminary events met in the finals 
for the championship of the city. 

The athletic games were conducted in a similar manner 
and were divided into junior, intermediate and senior 
divisions. The number of competitors was large and the 
caliber of their performance gratifying. 

The character of the work in the gymnasia of the 
department still attracts a growing patronage each year. 
The civil service classes for candidates for the Fire 
and Police Departments of the city are worthy of special 
commendation. The physical efficiency of these two 
branches of the public service in a large manner can be 
attributed to the preliminary work in our gymnasia. 

The salutary effects of public gymnasia and baths 
in any country, now readily recognized, leads us into 
the belief that the public health can be better conserved 
by the construction of additional houses of this char- 
acter in sections hitherto unprovided for. This rule 
especially pertains to the West End, Brighton and our 
new acquisition, Hyde Park. No expenditure by the 
city can show more profitable returns in health and 
happiness. The gymnasium permits us to carry out 
the summer work on the playgrounds during the 
inclement months of the winter, thus providing the 
ideal program all the year round of recreation and play, 



13 

The burning of the boys' quarters at Tenean Beach 
during the winter made necessary the reconstruction of 
this building on the former lines and dimensions. 

The opening of the third building in Charlestown 
filled a long-felt want on the part of the citizens of this 
section of the city. It has a gymnasium and shower 
room and as no building of this type has ever been in 
evidence in this residential quarter, its value as a con- 
tributing factor in promoting health and recreation 
cannot be overestimated. 

A new and substantial brick building was also con- 
structed on Dewey Beach in Charlestown to replace 
the former dilapidated affair. The new building has 
commodious quarters for both men and women, with a 
modern shower room and toilet facilities. Its capacity 
was taxed almost daily during the open season. 

The presence of a newly constructed floating bath at 
Fort Point channel, near the South Station, was appreci- 
ated by many whose duties in the nearby factories and 
workhouses made a midday plunge bath inviting and 
resuscitative. 

The opening of such buildings as are now under con- 
struction in the South End and South Boston will 
prove decided boons to the people of these districts. 
The South Boston building will have a permanent daily 
shower room for both men and women, while the South 
End building will be equipped with a spacious gymna- 
sium and shower rooms. 

Since the last annual report the work outlined by 
the former Board of Music Trustees has been continued 
by the newly organized Park and Recreation Depart- 
ment and the improvements made in the character of 
the work has aided in a large measure towards the 
increased success that has been attained. During the 
year 136 concerts of various types were given and paid 
for out of the Park and Recreation Department appro- 



14 

priation. Of the 136 concerts mentioned, 85 were 
given during the summer season and 51 were given 
during the winter season. All were successfully con- 
ducted and well attended. At the 85 summer con- 
certs it is estimated that 564,500 people attended, 
while at the winter concerts an actual attendance of 
37,039 was recorded. The total attendance for the 
year at these concerts was therefore 601,539. 

A series of municipal dances were held in the gymnasia 
of the department and proved an unqualified success. 
The patrons were drawn for the most part from the 
gymnasium classes and they, with their friends, were 
given the privilege of indulging in an evening's social 
intercourse when dancing was enjoyed under proper 
auspices. 
\ , The necessity of having all public celebrations of an 

athletic or recreative nature under the patronage of this 
department is potent. The Park and Recreation Depart- 
ment has the trained men, the facilities and all the 
paraphernalia suitable for affairs of such a character. 
All the holiday festivities are now conducted by this 
department, and the development of this policy should 
be sought even further. 

The wide range of our activities and the immeasurable 
results of a healthy and recreative nature that accrue 
to the community as a whole render this department 
one of the most salutary and beneficial of the many 
city departments. Our facilities reach the individual 
and the public as a whole, alike, transforming all into 
better, healthier and more contented citizens, and 
proving most convincingly our claim of being a sane 
and provident municipality. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Hugh C. McGrath, 

Superintendent of Baths.

REPORT OF THE PHYSICAL DIRECTOR OF 
THE PARK AND RECREATION DEPART- 
MENT. 



To John H. Dillon, Charles Gibson and Thomas F. 
Galvin, Commissioners: 

Gentlemen, — In presenting the yearly report of 
conditions and statistics concerning the activities under 
my supervision, I think it is worthy of especial mention 
to note the increased attendance everywhere. In 
those districts where new and spacious quarters have 
replaced old and cramped ones, a renewal and revival 
of interest was of course looked for, and the difference 
in comparative attendances is not so startling as the 
figures would seem to indicate. But in other gymna- 
siums which have been in operation for several years and 
where interest has had the usual reactive chance to grow 
lax, the attendance has been gratifyingly larger than in 
many former years. 

At Columbia road in its eleventh year of existence, 
every one of which has recorded tremendously large 
classes, the attendance was greater than it has been any 
year since the opening in 1904. 

There are now nine large gymnasiums, with two more 
in process of construction, and since the opening of 
Charlestown's Municipal Building last year with its fine 
facilities for this work the city's districts are fairly well 
covered. 

The cry for instruction and knowledge of the modern 
dancing was met to some degree by introducing steps 
in the classes which carried out this style in a modified 
form. 



16 

Demonstrations of the year's work by all the classes 
were held at each gymnasium at the close of the season 
as has been the custom. 

The instructors were placed in charge of the various 
municipal playgrounds during the summer instead of 
at the beaches as heretofore. 

Instruction in athletics in its various forms was given 
and district and interdistrict meets were held every 
Saturday, covering the entire city. 

Swimming competitions also were held weekly. 

Carrying this idea out to a grand finish, there was a 
final meet held at Franklin Field at the close of the 
season in which winners in the previous district meets 
competed. Gold, silver and bronze medals were 
awarded. 

The same plan for a season finish was made in the 
swimming competitions, and at the Charles River Basin 
there was an interesting and exciting close to the weekly 
contests. 

Baseball was by far the most popular of the outdoor 
features, and games were played regularly every Wednes- 
day and Saturday. 

During the extreme hot weather the instructors of 
playground athletics took their boys to the nearest 
bathing beach and there gave them instruction in the 
various swimming strokes and in life-saving and resus- 
citation. This formerly was a regular feature of routine 
when the men were engaged at the various public 
beaches during the summer instead of at the playgrounds 
as at present. 

The work of the instructors this year merits special 
approbation as it was performed under trying conditions. 

Respectfully submitted, 

James L. Walsh, 

Physical Director.
