COMMISSIONERS' REPORT. 



Hon. James M. Curley, 

Mayor of the City of Boston: 

Dear Sir, — In compliance with the Revised Ordi- 
nances the Board of Park and Recreation Commissioners 
herewith presents the annual report for the year 
1914-15. 

John H. Dillon, Chairman. 

Charles Gibson. 

Thomas F. Galvin. 



DEPUTY COMMISSIONER'S REPORT. 



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

Gentlemen, — I herewith submit a report of work 
performed in the department under the direction of 
your Board during the year ending January 31, 1915. 

Grading in the vicinity of the Parkman Memorial 
Bandstand was completed, the loam spaces being seeded 
and the Forum surfaced with a mixture of beach gravel 
and sand. The bandstand was surrounded with a 
circular row of concrete seats. 

Commonwealth avenue lawns from Arlington street 
to Dartmouth street were reinforced with loam brought 
in from Roxbury and placed in trenches 4 feet in depth 
and from 10 to 12 feet in width, great care being taken 
to avoid the tree roots. Sufficient fertihzer was used to 
properly nourish the trees. 

A 4-inch cast-iron pipe was also laid under the lawns 
from Arlington street to Exeter street with suitable 
connections for irrigation. 

In the Fens a creditable horticultural display was 
made in what was known as ''The Convention Garden." 
This garden was arranged in conjunction with the 
annual convention in Boston of the Society of American 
Florists and Ornamental Horticulturists. Exhibits were 
made by thirty-two florists and nurserymen from all 
parts of the country. 

Seventy beds were laid out containing many choice 
varieties of shrubs and plants. The bays in the lagoon 
contained a fine exhibit of aquatics. 



The department planted five beds near the main 
entrance and these were much admired by the throngs 
of people who visited the garden throughout the year. 

While the garden was nominally laid out and planted 
under the auspices of the Florists' Society the work was 
actually performed by the department force and re- 
flected great credit upon it. 

At the Fens also some necessary changes were 
made on the drive at the entrance to the new wing of the 
Art Museum, a tar macadam surface was laid down 
surrounding a circular grass plot. 

At Franklin Park walks were constructed from the 
Bird House to and around the Elephant House, the latter 
building having been erected during the year. The 
Elephant Yard was also laid out and surrounded with 
a strong iron rail fence and a guard fence. The neces- 
sary grading in connection with the above work was also 
completed. 

The widening of Seaver street was commenced during 
the year but is unfinished. The work is under the control 
of the Public Works Department according to designs 
prepared by the Park and Recreation Department. 

The golf links were improved by laying a water serv- 
ice pipe 4,300 feet long to the new greens, sixteen of 
which were laid out. The greens were trenched over, 
fertilized, graded and prepared for spring seeding. 

This gives room for a nine-hole course with a spare 
green and a six-hole course for beginners. 

At Franklin Field the ground along Blue Hill avenue 
was graded by the department force to permit of the 
extension of the bowling greens and of the tennis courts, 
the present facilities being inadequate for the demands 
of the public. 

Norfolk Street Playground was improved by grading 
the upper level of the playground and by building a 
retaining wall. 



8 

At Rutherford Avenue Playground a concrete retain- 
ing wall was built and a high fence erected inclosing 
the boys' playground. 

Road repairs were made during the year on Com- 
monwealth avenue from Summit avenue to Lake street, 
in the Fens from Newbury to Boylston street, from 
Boylston street to Agassiz road and from Fens Bridge to 
Brookline avenue and in the Riverway from Brookline 
avenue to Longwood avenue. 

In Olmsted Park, Jamaicaway was repaired from 
Perkins street to the Arborway. 

In all 71,250 square yards were treated with a blanket 
coat of tar, this being about 3.6 miles of parkway. This 
method of road treatment is far superior to the old 
method of sprinkling with oil emulsion. 

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 herewith the annual 
report of the recreation division of this department for 
the year 1914-15. 

The recreation division of this department stiU con- 
tinues to enhst the active cooperation of thousands of 
its citizens with the resultant dividends of health, 
happiness and good citizenship. The varied facilities 
of the department in the recreational field serve to 
permit the citizens of Boston to enjoy healthful and 
recreative pastimes for twelve months of the year, and 
each department in turn has its quota of patrons who 
show their appreciation of what this department pro- 
vides with their constant and faithful attendance at 
and indulgence in their favorite form of play. 

Every section of this city can boast of some facility 
which provides fuU advantage to its local citizenship. 
The department with its nine public gymnasia, eight 
out-door beaches and twelve all year around bath houses, 
two golf courses, three toboggan sUdes, over one hundred 
tennis courts, two bowling greens, together with its 
innumerable skating areas, gives to its citizens full and 
varied facilities. The improvements which have been 
made during the past year tending towards a thorough 
and up-to-date management of these different items are 
numerous and extend through every section of the city. 



10 



Norfolk Street Playground. 
This playground in Mattapan furnishes an additional 
asset to the department and gives to the people of this 
section an additional opportunity to recreate. Two 
baseball diamonds will be provided as well as four tennis 
courts, while the locker and shower building is an up-to- 
date and picturesque monument, suited to requirements 
of this new adjunct. 

Franklin Field. 
The new tennis courts which have been made in 
Franklin Field have justified the confidence of the 
department in the widespread interest which is taken 
in tennis. The bowling greens also have their constant 
delegation on hand long into the summer evenings 
indulging in this popular sport. The eighteen baseball 
diamonds are really inadequate to meet the demands in 
this section, while the quarter-mile cinder running track 
is the mecca for hundreds of schoolboy, college and club 
athletes on every summer evening. 

Franklin Park. 
About fifty tennis courts are scattered through Frank- 
lin Park, wherever an area of sufficient size and smooth- 
ness presents itself, and all are occupied on Saturday 
afternoons and during the summer evenings. The six- 
hole golf course for beginners and the nine-hole course 
for the more adept have been the means for permitting 
this most popular time among all classes. In fact, the 
necessity becomes more obvious yearly of extending the 
nine-hole course into an eighteen-hole course, thereby 
alleviating the congestion at the different tees, and 
furnishing additional opportunity for new patrons to 
take up this sport. The three toboggan slides on School- 
master's Hill furnish a most enjoyable means of rec- 



11 

reation in the winter time for young and old alike on 
the afternoons and evenings. Quarters have been 
provided for the storage of toboggans and every means 
provided for the health and comfort of the devotees of 
this sport. 

An innovation was made in the department curric- 
ulum this past year by permitting the New England 
Inter-collegiate Athletic Association to hold its annual 
cross country run over a course which was pronounced 
ideal by the representatives of the various New England 
colleges who participated. 

L Steeet. 
The widespread popularity of this institution has been 
intensified during the past year by the ever increasing 
number of patrons who have recourse to those waters 
during the twelve months of the year. Its quarters 
were crowded on many days far beyond its ordinary 
capacity, but temporary means were adopted for taking 
care of the extraordinary numbers on such days. The 
house was well regulated as to its method of management 
and equipment and maintained in an up-to-date and 
satisfactory manner at all times. 

Tenean Beach. 
During the past year additional structures were built 
on Tenean Beach to replace the former ones which were 
burned down. The necessity of constructing a brick 
or cement structure containing more adequate facilities 
as regards lockers and showers is made more evident 
year by year. 

Dewey Beach. 
A new and up-to-date brick building which was 
opened at Dewey Beach in Charlestown this past year 
has already proved its worth. Here, too, provisions 



12 

were made for segregating the different ages and sexes 
and many new lockers provided for those who crowded 
this popular beach during the summer season. A small 
play corner should be provided for the children this 
coming year. 

Athletic Games. 

During the past year athletic games with graduated 
events, suited to the various divisions, were held through- 
out the different sections of the city. Three classes 
were formulated, senior, intermediate and junior com- 
petitives, and the events were arranged suitable to 
these various ages and divisions. Over one thousand 
participants took part in the preliminary district con- 
tests which were held in different sections of the city 
and the three first place winners in each event competed 
in the final meet at Franklin Field for the champion- 
ship of the city. The success of these contests invoked 
the approbation of all critics who seek to provide health- 
ful and body building contests for the influence of the 
city, and the number of participants and the wide- 
spread interest, also the large attendance of people 
who witnessed the contest did much to fasten a hold 
on the boys of the entire city. Swimming contests 
were likewise held under similar conditions on the 
various beaches of the city, and the winners of these 
respective district contests competed in the final meet 
at Wood Island for the championship of the city. 
Handsome prizes with the department seal were given 
to the winners in the respective events. 

The department gymnasiums are still the object of 
admiration by visitors from other cities and the curric- 
ulum of the gymnasiums serve to draw to its quarters 
young and old alike with an ever increasing attendance 
yearly. The graduated system of gymnastics, for both 
young and old as well as the development of the candi- 



13 

dates for the Police and Fire Departments in the civil 
service classes, prove conclusively the extraordinary 
amount of benefit which accrues to all who use our 
public gymnasia. They also serve to support a propa- 
ganda of healthful and hygienic principles among 
people who hitherto have been ignorant of its advantages, 
and the incessant demands of people who live in sections 
where public gymnasiums have not as yet been provided 
prove conclusively that all are thoroughly acquainted 
with the advantages of such an institution within their 
reach. 

McKenzie Beach. 

A new house was also built on McKenzie Beach to 
replace the former structure which was destroyed. The 
development of the adjacent McNary Park Playground 
may make it important in the near future either to dis- 
continue this beach as a bathing resort or constructing 
a stone wall which will prevent the debris which is 
being dumped nearby from floating onto the beach 
area. 

The two new and up-to-date houses containing 
gymnasia and shower rooms which are being con- 
structed in Roxbury and South End will prove of an 
estimable value to the citizens of these respective dis- 
tricts. They should be opened this coming year. 
A new building which is also to be opened shortly, the 
Ward 15, in South Boston, will prove a valuable link in 
the chain of bath houses which this city seeks to provide 
for every section. It has permanent shower rooms for 
both men and women with over one hundred shower baths 
to be provided. 

North End Park. 
The necessity of securing an appropriation for the' 
remodeling of the North End Park Beach and piers is 



14 

evident even to a casual observer. This most popular 
institution with its playground, beach and recreational 
piers serves a most cosmopolitan patronage who have 
recourse to its coohng waters in the daytime, and its 
piers in the evening, as a tonic and relief from the oppres- 
sive tenements nearby. 

Chaelesbank Gymnasium. 
A serious problem confronts this department in the 
West End where no baseball facihties are provided 
nearer than Boston Common. It has been necessary 
to take down the apparatus at the Charlesbank Gymna- 
sium to permit baseball playing by the boys of this 
vicinity to the detriment of the track athletes, who still 
maintain this, the first municipal out-door gymnasium 
in the world, as the favorite resort to practice in track 
athletics, but the dangers of baseball prevent the track 
patrons from enjoying the facilities provided here to 
their safety. 

Wood Island. 

The new bath house at Wood Island will be a decided 
improvement over the former wooden structure. Girls 
are segregated from women, and boys from men in this 
new structure, and all together it will be a decided boon 
to the health and comfort of the people of East Boston 
as well as a fitting type of building that harmonizes with 
its surroundings. 

The policy of this department should be, if possible, 
to provide swimming pools in every section of the city, 
thereby providing an opportunity to indulge in swim- 
ming for twelve months of the year, just as now our 
gymnasiums and playgrounds provide twelve months of 
recreation. Children could be taught to swim during 
the scholastic year as well as throughout the short 
summer season as is done in foreign countries, for 



15 

swimming is one of the most valuable assets in life and 
should be acquired during the early years. 

Several playground houses have as yet been unpro- 
vided with showers and means should be taken as soon 
as money is available to provide shower baths for the 
patrons of these playgrounds, for showers are, undoubt- 
edly, a necessary part of the equipment of any building 
as lockers or other facihties. 

The problems which this department helps to solve 
of furnishing recreation for young and old alike 
during the hours when people are at their leisure make 
this department one of the most sanitary of any in the 
city. Ordinarily, adults have eight hours of time in 
which they are not occupied and these hours are prolific 
of much good or harm dependent on whether the people 
are idle or engaged in healthful recreation. With the 
innumerable and varied activities which this depart- 
ment provides, there is no reason why the people of 
Boston could not become better citizens, more thoroughly 
equipped mentally and physically, for the successful 
carrying out of their daily pursuits as well as make 
them a more contented and happy community. 

Ill fares the land to hastening ills a prey 
Where wealth accumulates and men decay. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Hugh C. McGrath, 
Superintendent of Baths.

REPORT OF THE PHYSICAL DIRECTOR. 



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

Gentlemen, — In presenting the report of activities 
carried on under my direction for the past twelve months 
I would state that the statistics and observation not 
covered by figures prove this to have been the busiest 
and most active year this department has yet seen. 

Attendance, regular and spontaneous, unsolicited 
except by implied welcome and evident desire to serve 
well those who present themselves for the advantages 
which we offer, is the very potent evidence that is our 
attest of the appreciation of the public of Boston's 
gymnasia. 

The usual class work for men and women, boys and 
girls and working boys, was the large feature of the 
year as in the past and was without any marked or 
special change except in the case of the working boys' 
classes. 

A studied effort everywhere was made to foster and 
kindle the interest of this class of youthful dynamos, 
with very gratifying and lasting results. The line of 
attack was on competitive athletics. Boys of an average 
age of fifteen years were organized into teams, and regu- 
lar semimonthly track meets were held in all the large 
gypinasia. We shall endeavor in the future to hold and 
keep alive this much to be desired interest which we 
have evoked. 



17 

Each year an increasing number of men avail them- 
selves of the civil service training for the Police and Fire 
Departments which we offer to applicants, and it has 
been aptly remarked by an official of this department 
that the increasing ej0&ciency of those two branches of 
the public service can be directly attributed to a great 
degree to the preliminary work in our gymnasia. 

The summer work on the playgrounds was very like 
the work of last year, the same plans being adhered to of 
carrying on various district and interdistrict competi- 
tions, ending in a season finish in which the winners of 
the previous district meets and races tested their skill. 

Respectfully submitted, 

James L. Walsh, 
Physical Director.
