ANNUAL REPORT 



PAEK DEPARTMENT 



YEAR ENDING DECEMBER 31, 1926. 



Boston, December 31, 1926. 

Hojm. Malcolm E. Nichols, 
Mayor of Boston. 

Dear Sir,- — In accordance with section 15 of chapter 
185, Acts of 1875, the Park Commission herewith sub- 
mits its annual report for the year 1926. 

The past year has been distinguished by many impor- 
tant improvements. We will cover, however, only the 
major ones in this report. 

Fens. 

One of the most important improvements of the past 
3^ear was the rearrangement of the Fens roadways. A 
section of Boylston street and Audubon road in the 
Back Bay Fens, between Charlesgate West and Agassiz 
road, was transformed from a winding narrow drive to 
two one-way drives, with center grass reservation 
between, of ample width to handle the matter of traffic 
for a good many years, removing one of the most danger- 
ous traffic situations in the Park Sj^stem, removing as it 
did the extreme reverse curves. The new boulevard, 
as constructed, is well lighted and replaces an area that 
was unsuitable for present conditions. 



2 City Document No. 20. 

The work was done under contract at a total cost of 
$544,463. 

A contract has been let for $47,715 for reconstructing 
the next section of Audubon road, between Agassiz 
road and Fens Bridge. This improvement provides for 
similar construction as on the section completed last 
year. The work will be completed on or about June 
1, 1927. 

Park Roadways. 

The policy of permanent pavement on parkways and 
boulevards was continued. The main drive on Common- 
wealth avenue, between Sutherland road and Chestnut 
Hill avenue, was resurfaced at a cost of approximately 
$40,000. The traffic road on Commonwealth avenue, 
between Washington street and Leamington road, was 
resurfaced with the same type of pavement. 

A portion of the Arborway on the west drive, between 
Prince street and Centre street, was also resurfaced 
with this pavement. The latter two sections of the 
Parkway was done under contract at a total cost of 
$43,685. 

This year's work on park roads has brought to the 
parkways an enviable position with the other roads of 
the country. The policy, started in 1915 when Columbia 
road was first built, now reaches all over the Park 
System. 

Boston Common. 

A granite monument with a bronze tablet thereon 
inscribed with the Declaration of Independence was 
erected to commemorate the One Hundred Fiftieth 
Anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Inde- 
pendence. 

A contract was let for erecting iron fence along the 
curb line on Boylston street. This fence, when erected, 
should eliminate the promiscuous crossing on Boylston 
street by pedestrians. 

A monster celebration was held July 4th at the Frog 
Pond which was a great success and together with the 
fire works display was very largely attended — over 
40,000 people enjoyed same. 

The trees on Boston Common were carefully pruned 
during the winter months and the younger trees ferti- 
lized to a great extent. The trees at the present time 
are in better condition than they have been for years. 



Paek Department. 



Public Garden. 

The main walk on the Pubhc Garden, between Charles 
and Arlington streets, was reconstructed of a brown color 
concrete. This concrete replaced the old brown gravel 
walk that has served the garden for so many years and 
while it was very easy to walk on in dry weather, it was 
a distinct source of annoyance on wet days, due to its 
muddy condition. 

The department has solved the serious trouble of this 
heavily traveled way and still has a walk pleasant to 
the eye, soft in color and harmonizing with this beautiful 
floral garden of our city. 

A contract was let for resetting edgestone around the 
pond. This work will be completed early in the spring 
of 1927 and will remedy an unsightly edgestone and 
eliminate the serious dangers to children who play on 
the edge of the pond. 

A contract was let to rebuild and repair the cast-iron 
boundary fence which was erected in 1863 and has never 
been generally repaired. 

The floral displays this year were more beautiful than 
ever and drew tremendous crowds all through the season. 
The garden is still the show place of the city and the 
wonderful showing last year will make it very difficult 
for any garden in the country to become its equal. 

Franklin Park. 

The new motor road through Franklin Park, opened 
for travel late in 1925, has drawn many additional 
people to the "^ark to enjoy its scenery and to indulge 
in the various sports conducted there. This park, with 
its 527 acres, is the picnic ground of Boston and is an 
incentive for all people to get away in the summer from 
the hot city surroundings. 

The Golf Course was more heavily patronized than 
ever, — in fact it was the record year for attendance, 
there being over 55,000 golfers tramping over the 
course. The amount of revenue derived from same was 
$30,240. The cost of maintenance was approximatelv 
$15,900. The yearly golf fee of $10 has not eliminated 
the congestion on Saturdays, Sundaj^s and holidays. 
The congestion on these days has been so serious that 
it may become necessary to raise the daily golf fee in 



4 City Document No. 20. 

order to make the course playable on these days. An- 
other golf course should be provided in or near the city 
to accommodate the ever increasing demand for more 
golf facihties. A bill is scheduled to be drafted in the 
State Legislature for the State Metropolitan District 
Commission to buy, develop and maintain another golf 
course within the Metropohtan District of Boston. 

The subpolice station in the Overlook Building has 
been renovated and remodelled, under contract, at a 
cost of approximately $10,000. The police now have a 
building with modern conveniences, which is a great 
improvement over the old antiquated conditions at 
this building. 

A number of improvements were made in the city 
greenhouses,^ — the wooden plant benches being removed 
and permanent concrete ones installed at a cost of S2,700. 
This w^ork was done during the summer months. 

The toboggan chutes on Schoolmaster Hill were 
heavily patronized during February and December, 
which were the only months when sufficient snow was 
on the ground to provide toboganning. 

The Rose Garden and Herbaceous Garden drew tre- 
mendous crowds to view these stellar attractions. 

Zoological Garden. 

The Zoo still proves to be the main attraction in 
Franklin Park. The enormous crowds of visitors show 
ever-increasing public interest in the institution. 

A number of purchases were made during the past 
year which have been exhibited in our collection for the 
first time. Among them were: One pair nilgai; one pair 
Stanley cranes; one brindled gnu; one ceram cassowary; 
one emu; one rhea; one pair vulturine guinea fowl; one 
adult llama; one young male Chapman zebra; one tiger. 

The death rate among the animals was exceptionally 
low last year. The department lost, by violence, four 
raccoons which were stoned to death after dark by 
vandals, and a male ostrich which was killed by a man 
under the influence of liquor. The death of animals 
after dark by vandals is serious enough to warrant the 
enclosing of the entire Zoo with a permanent fence. 
An ornamental iron fence to extend all around the Zoo 
would cost a considerable sum, but would eliminate all 
vandalism and allow the department to control the 
entire Zoological Garden both day and night. The

death and injury to animals, the possible escape of 
animals and the danger of an incendiary fire at some of 
the houses and sheds are a constant menace to the com- 
munity and also to some of the fine specimens of animals 
we have in our Zoo. 

A very fine planting of evergreens was made around 
the Bear Dens, consisting principally of hemlocks, 
spruces and taxus cuspidata. 

Playgrounds and Small Parks. 

William H. Garvey Playground. — A new modern field 
house was erected at a cost of $23,788. This building 
is of brick and concrete construction of the very latest 
design and lay-out and was constructed under contract. 
Concrete bleachers with a seating capacity of 1,200 
people were constructed under contract at a cost of 
$10,162. The filling and loaming of this playground in 
1925 and the new building and bleachers have brought 
this playground to a state of development that puts it 
among the real good playgrounds of the city. 

John H. L. Noyes Playground. — A new field house 
was constructed of brick and concrete construction at 
a cost of $21,210. The filling and loaming of the 
remainder of the undeveloped area has made the play- 
ground one of the best in the East Boston section. It 
is claimed by the athletes to be the best football field 
in Boston. It is in such great demand that during the 
football season two different games of football were 
played every Sunday afternoon. Great throngs of 
spectators have enjoyed these games which encourages 
us to further developments as it shows the interest the 
older people are taking in the sports on the playgrounds 
when they go out and enjoy the wholesome recreation 
as onlookers. 

Brookside Avenue Playground. — A field house was 
constructed of brick and concrete at a cost of $10,506. 
A wire fence was erected around the playground to keep 
the activities within the area of the lot. A wooden 
shelter was erected to provide a shelter for organized 
games for the small children, and also for swings which 
are entirely under the shelter and away from the sun's 
hot rays during the summer months. This playground 
is now wholly developed, and from a rough unkempt 
parcel of land a modern playground stands for the 
younger children. 



6 City Document No. 20. 

Francis Parkman Playground. — This playground was 
developed by excavating on the high ground and the 
material was used for filling on the low ground. The 
playground is now graded so that baseball and football 
can be played by the smaller boys. It has also been 
graded so that it can be flooded, and skating was 
inaugurated there in December. 

Franklin Field. — The old grandstand used in the old 
horse racing days has been more or less abandoned during 
the last ten years. The old track in front of the grand- 
stand was filled in with loam and graded so as to provide 
an area large enough for two baseball games. The 
ground was seeded and this section of the field should be 
in fine condition for baseball next spring. This improve- 
ment not only develops this portion of the field but it 
also puts to use the old concrete grandstand for the 
spectators. 

Mary Hemenway Playground. — A wooden shelter was 
erected and the ball field was resurfaced with screened 
loam. A wire fence was erected on two of the boundary 
lines of the playground so as to keep the children from 
trespassing on the abutting properties. 

Statler Park. — The area bounded by Columbus 
avenue, Stuart and Church streets was razed of the old 
buildings and a small triangular park was constructed. 
This park is located opposite the new Statler Hotel on 
Columbus avenue. It has removed some very unsightly, 
dilapidated buildings from a section opposite Boston's 
newest hotel, and an open space has been made of beauty, 
harmonizing with the architecture of this modern hotel. 
The area was named "Statler Park" in honor of the 
man operating the hotel, who has brought to Boston 
additional modern hotel facilities much needed for the 
advancement of the entire city. 

Almont Street Playground. — A portion of the property 
of the Park Department on Almont street, Mattapan, 
was developed by filling and loaming. This portion 
of the playground will be in use for the children next 
spring and in a very rapidly developing district it will 
fill a much needed want. 

Charlesbank. — The locker building constructed in the 
year 1895 was generally remodelled and repaired under 
contract at a cost of $19,250. The entire building was 
overhauled, strengthened and relaid out to meet modern 
conditions. All new fixtures were installed, new flooring

laid, interior walls replaced and the surface of the 
exterior walls covered with cement stucco. 

Webster Avenue Playground. — The buildings purchased 
by the city in 1925 just off Hanover street near North 
Bennet street were torn down this past year to prepare 
for the construction of a small playground. This play- 
ground will provide another breathing space in this 
very congested section of the North End, The area 
of this small playground is 13,448 square feet. 

Gymnasiums and Physical Training. 

The gymnastic classes were held during the winter, 
spring and fall months and were very well attended by 
the public. The classes for women and girls were held 
on Mondays and Thursdays; for men and boys Tuesdays 
and Fridays; and for boys on Wednesdays and Satur- 
days. The indoor baths and swimming pools have been 
very well attended during the year. 

At the Boston Arena on April 7, 1926, the department 
staged its annual demonstration of the gymnastic 
classes of all the local districts. It was a monster 
demonstration and the public who attended were very 
well satisfied. 

In 1926 an innovation was started in the depart- 
ment when the physical instructors were detailed to the 
various larger playgrounds of the city to promote 
organized athletic sports. Baseball and track teams 
were formed, and a baseball league was organized; 
games were played between district baseball teams and 
the members of the champion team of the league were 
given prizes. The department held a general field and 
track meet at Franklin Field on Saturday, September 
4, 1926. 

Bathing Beaches. 

The outdoor bathing season for 1926 was carried 
through in a very satisfactory manner. The pubhc 
used the beaches with greater attendance than in the 
previous year. The department was decidedly fortunate 
in not having a bathing fatality during the year. 

The beaches were supplied with new clean sand before 
the start of the season and were maintained throughout 
the season in a condition surpassing anything in the 
past. The beach houses were all put in first-class 
condition preparatory to the summer season. 



8 City Document No. 20. 

The L Street Bath House, Boston's old standby, was 
renovated and remodelled, especially the men's section. 
Additional locker facilities were provided in the men's 
section for 585 additional bathers. A new roof was laid, 
an additional handball court built, fences were repaired 
and other general repairs made and the entire exterior 
was freshly painted. The total cost of this work was 
$25,644. 

Swimming meets were held during the summer at all 
the beaches, and the winners of the local meets of all the 
beaches engaged in the final meet on August 29 at 
Marine Park Beach. 

Band Concerts. 

The department furnished forty band concerts during 
the past summer in various parts of the city. Band 
concerts were enjoyed on Boston Common, Franklin 
Park and Marine Park every Sunday during July and 
August. At Jamaica Pond, McConnell Park and World 
War Memorial Park concerts were given on alternate 
Sundays during the same months. 

A Christmas tree 70 feet in height was erected 
during December and was illuminated with 1,200 
colored lights. A monster Christmas Eve celebration 
was staged December 24 with a band concert and or- 
ganized choral singing and with other special features. 

The main events of the year were received by radio 
at the Parkman Bandstand, Boston Common and 
amplified, using the public address system for the benefit 
of the citizens of the city. Such events as the World 
Series Baseball Games and some of the major football 
games attracted thousands of our people. 

Snow Removal. 

The advent of winter and the removal of snow from 
our parkways and boulevards is another special main- 
tenance duty we have to perform. The department 
has for its equipment eight tractors and six trucks 
attached with plows for the removal of snow. The 
department is proud of its record for the removal of 
snow, for no matter how bad the storm has been the 
department has never failed to have its roads open 
for travel. The removal of the snow from a length of 
roadway totaling forty-one miles, and averaging 40 
feet in width forms a part of our winter duties.

The Aquarium. 

The Aquarium had a record number of visitors in 
1926, totahng 350,000. 

The department has the following exhibits : 



American fresh water 
Massachusetts marine 
Tropical marine 
European marine 
Bal Aquaria 
Mammals . 
Salamanders 
Turtles 



2,650 specimens. 

108 specimens. 

442 specimens. 

1 specimen. 

52 specimens. 

4 specimens. 

44 specimens. 

24 specimens. 



The department is proud of possessing the following 
record exhibits: 

Green Moray — Largest of species, longest in captivity. 
Wreckfish — • Only specimen exhibited alive in America. 
Mackerel — Established new record for life in captivity. 
Bluefish — Established new record for life in captivity. 

Six of the old wooden exhibition fish tanks were 
taken out and concrete tanks installed. The remainder 
of the wooden tanks will have to be replaced as they 
are beyond repairing. A contract has been let for 
taking out the old galvanized-iron piping in the Fresh 
Water System and replacing same with new brass 
piping. 

Moth and Tree Division. 

The department forces inspected during the past 
year all the trees growing in the city and those which 
were found infested with moths were sprayed. 

All the trees in the city on private and city property 
were inspected for moths from January to March, and 
October to December, inclusive. The oriental moth 
was found to be the most numerous and was infecting 
some of the trees in Dorchester, Roxbury and a few in 
Brighton. The satin moth was found in smaller 
quantities scattered over the entire city. The gypsy 
moth was found only in a very few places in different 
sections of the city. The brown-tail moth has been 
practically eliminated from the city, only a small 
number were found on one street in Roxbury. All the 
infested trees were sprayed during the months of May, 
June, July and August. Tent caterpillars and the 



10 City Document No. 20. 

fall web worm were found on some trees and same 
were cut off and burned. All the moth work done on 
private property was charged to the owners of the 
land at cost. 

The street, playground and park trees were pruned, 
old ones removed and on some streets new ones planted. 

Cemetery Division. 

All the cemeteries were put in first-class condition 
for Memorial Day. The cemeteries never looked better 
than during the year 1926. 

Mt. Hope Cemetery. — Two parts of the single grave 
section were turned over and the rock removed; all 
work being done by contract. Repairs were made to the 
roads by our own forces and then treated with tar 
preparation and pea stone. We have removed several 
dead trees and pruned numerous other trees and 
shrubbery. 

Fairview Cemetery. — A section was turned over and 
the stones removed, for new graves of various sizes. 
A new piece of road was rebuilt of asphalt macadam. 
Some general repairs were made on the office building 
and chapel. 

Evergreen Cemetery.- — A large parcel of land was 
turned over and the stones removed by our forces. 

General repairs and the maintenance of roads, 
buildings, graves, trees and shrubs were made on the 
other seventeen cemeteries of the city under the control 
of this department. 

Recommendations. 

The most pressing demand on the department is the 
modernizing of the park roads by straightening, widening 
or constructing parallel one-way drives, so as to ade- 
quately carry the ever-increasing number of motor 
vehicles using the parkways. A step in the right 
direction has been made on the reconstruction of 
Audubon road and Boylston street in the Back Bay Fens. 

The traffic during rush hours at Governor square 
intersection has reached the unbearable stage and 
steps must be taken to give some relief. A diagonal 
intersection of two main highways. Commonwealth 
avenue and Beacon street, forms one of the worst 
points of traffic congestion in our city. The traffic at 
this square, with eight intersecting motor roads with 



Park Department. 11 

all their corresponding motor travel and two main lines 
of electric cars, is a problem for experts. The Boston 
Elevated Railway Company could eliminate much of 
the trouble by running its street cars under the square. 
The objection of the Boston Elevated Railway Company 
to this plan is the cost, especially as same would have to 
be borne by the street car riders. It would be advisable 
now to try out a new trajfic plan at the square by not 
allowing any left turns. 

The policy of the improvement of the existing play- 
grounds rather than the purchasing of land for new 
playgrounds should be continued. 

Field houses should be constructed at Jefferson Play- 
ground, Roxbury; Barry Playground, Charlestown and 
Christopher Gibson Playground, Dorchester. The field 
house at Billings Field, West Roxbury, is inadequate to 
handle the present needs of the district, and in its 
present antiquated condition, the better policy is to 
demolish it and build a new modern building. 

The Leverett pond silt nuisance carried through from 
the Brookline Town brook and emptying into our 
pond has not been remedied. This material has almost 
blocked the flow of water in Leverett pond. The 
removal of this material from Leverett pond and 
Muddy river should be done this year, but the major 
part of the expense should be borne by the town of 
Brookline. 

Further repairs and alterations should be made to 
the women's section at the L Street Bath House. 

At the Aquarium, more of the galvanized iron piping 
should be removed and new brass piping installed. 
More of the old wooden fish tanks should be taken out 
and new ones of concrete constructed. 

The purchase of additional trucks and tractors has 
more than taxed the garage facilities of the department. 
A new modern garage large enough to house all of our 
motor equipment should be built in Franklin Park. 

Respectfully submitted, 

William P. Long, 

Chairman. 
Myron P. Lewis, 
Charles P. Norton, 
Acting Commissioners.
