City Document No. 20. 



REPORT OF THE DEPUTY COMMISSIONER. 



Boston, December 31, 1925. 

To the Board of Park Commissioners. 

. Dear Sirs, — I respectfully beg leave to submit a 
report of work performed under the direction of your 
Board during the year 1925. 

The year 1925 witnessed a great many alterations 
and improvements, additional playgrounds, extensions 
to the Zoo, etc. 

In compiling this report I will enumerate only the 
more important items. 

One of the most important changes was the opening 
of Franklin Park to autos, which required the widening 
and resurfacing of the road in Frankhn Park, between 
Blue Hill avenue and Forest Hills street. Work was 
started on December 15, 1924, and completed in August, 
1925, at an estimated cost of $117,300. 

The pohcy adopted by the Park Department of 
building bleachers on the more important and larger 
playgrounds was continued on the WiUiam Eustis 
Playground, Roxbury, where renovations to the play- 
ground and the building of bleachers was completed 
in the early summer at a cost of $46,000. 

Another important improvement was the grading 
and foaming of the William H. Garvey Playground in 
Neponset. This playground, which has been a morass 
for a number of years, was placed in playable condition 
early in the spring at a cost of $26,000; a field house 
was also built on this playground at a cost of $24,000. 
This section of the city is now taken care of for a num- 
ber of years. 

A beginning was made on the changes in the Fens in 
the securing and spreading, etc., of the filling for the 
new road at a cost of $7,770. 

A new playground in Roxbury, in the vicinity of 
Heath street, near the Jefferson School, was laid out 
and graded at a cost of $12,000. 

Another new playground that was graded and loamed 



Park Department. 3 

was the Brookside Avenue Playground, Jamaica Plain; 
also Wellington street, East Boston. 

A new field house was built at the John H. L. Noyes 
Playground, East Boston, at a cost of $22,000. 

The policy of permanent road surfacing was con- 
tinued during the year and the following roads were 
laid down to bitulithic pavement: 

Commonwealth avenue, between Leamington 
road and Chestnut Hill avenue, $10,000. 

Riverway, from Huntington avenue to Longwood 
avenue, and the widening of same, $66,000. 

Zoological Garden. 

The death rate at the Zoological Garden was again 
exceptionally low, in fact one of the lowest in the 
country. 

A number of important acquisitions which were pur- 
chased during the year were as follows: 

A large private collection of birds from W. R. Samp- 
son, which comprises 190 specimens; a large collection 
of ducks and geese of various species; pair of musk 
oxen, one Ceram cassowary, two cro^vned cranes, two 
marabou storks, two griffon vultures, two Ruppel's 
vultures, three Egyptian white vultures, four Egyptian 
black vultures, four African sand grouse, four chukar 
partridges, four scarlet ibis, and two patas monkeys. 

A large number of animals were bom during the year, 
the most important being that of a yak calf, the first 
ever born in Boston. Other births were buffalo calf, 
llama, two red deer fawns, two sika deer fa^Mis and 
kangaroo. 

Among the gifts to the Zoological Garden were six 
reindeer, presented by the Boston American, and a 
lion cub presented by Mr. and Mrs. A. M. Creighton. 

The attendance during the past year showed that 
public interest in the institution is steadily increasing. 
The police estimate that 50,000 men, women and chil- 
dren visited the Zoological Garden the first Sunday of 
daylight saving. 

Aquarium. 

The end of the year finds the Aquarium in better 
shape than ever before. For the first time in yenTs 
the Aquarium has gone through the entire whiter 
without an empty tank. 



4 City Document No. 20. 

One of the outstanding accomplishments was the 
renewing of the salt water piping system which was- 
replaced by hard lead pipe which has a mechanical 
strength much greater than soft lead. The Boston 
Aquarium is the first institution of its kind to use this 
piping for salt water work. 

In September the first concrete exhibition tank in the 
Aquarium was completed and quickly demonstrated its 
vast superiority over the old wooden tanks. 

At the present time we have over 1,500 specimens 
with about 112 varieties. 

We are indebted to the Massachusetts Fish and Game 
Commission for 10 adult small. mouth black bass and 
100 Chinook or King Salmon. 

The hatchery is rapidly becoming an important 
factor in the supply of trout for exhibition. 

The total attendance during the year was 250,000; 
largest monthly attendance was 55,000. 

The Boston Aquarium at the present time ranks fifth 
in size among the public aquariums of this country. It 
is surpassed by New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco 
and Detroit in the order named. 

Gymnasia. 

The year 1925 was very successful. The gymnasium 
classes were very poplar, and the monster demonstra- 
tion held at the Arena in which classes from the various 
gymnasia were brought together for the first time proved 
a revelation to a great many people. 

Beaches. 

Not one life was lost during the year 1925 on any of 
our beaches under the control of this department. 
Larger crowds than ever before patronized the beaches,, 
the houses being filled to capacity. 

The L Street Bath, the most p?opular bathhouse in the 
country, will have to be rebuilt before 1926 bathing 
season. 

Moth and Tree Division. 

The entire city was inspected for the gypsy, brown- 
tail, Oriental and satin moth. The gypsy moth infesta- 
tion was very light; the brown tails were only found 



PaKK DEPARTxMEiVT. 5 

in one place; the Orientals had decreased, and the satin 
moth had increased — over 00,000 inspections were made 
and 24,000 places sprayed. 

A large number of street trees were planted and a 
great many removals made. 

This division deserves special commendation for the 
large amount of work performed during the past year. 

Band (Concerts. 

During the summer band concerts were given on 
Boston Common, Marine Park, Jamaica Pond, Franklin 
Park, World War Memorial Park, McConnell Park, 
Dorchester, and Madison Park, Roxbury, also Everett 
square, Hyde Park. 

Cemetery Division. 

Mt. Hope. — An area was developed for single graves 
and a large amount of planting was done, all the main 
avenues were resurfaced. This cemetery was a credit 
to the city during the year. 

FairvieiLi. — A large amount of land was developed for 
single grave lots; some of the roads were rebuilt and a 
great many improvements made throughout the year. 

In the remaining eighteen cemeteries a large number 
of important improvements were made and this division 
is in excellent condition at the present time. 

I again wish to call^ the attention of the commission 
to the preservation of old grave stones, especially those 
in King's Chapel and the Central Burying Ground, 
which are fast disintegrating. 

Recommendations. 

I respectfully recommend that the two one-way road- 
ways be completed as rapidly as possible in the Fens, 
owing to the number of accidents which will occur there 
otherwise. 

The widening of the Riverway, especially at the curve 
between Longwood avenue and Brookline avenue, should 
be completed this year. 

The side road, from Washington street to Leamington 
road, should be rebuilt and resurfaced, owing to the large 
number of new buildings erected, which will make this 
area extensively traveled during the ensuing year. 



6 City Document No, 20. 

The traffic road in the Arborway, from Pond street to 
Centre street, should also be rebuilt. 

Field houses should be erected on various playgrounds 
and the playgrounds resurfaced. 

I also recommend that no further playgrounds be pur- 
chased until such time as the present playgrounds are 
put in first-class condition. 

Respectfully submitted, 

W. P. Long, 

Deputy Commissioner.
