Work On Baker Park: 0053.0043

CITY PARK IS PLEASANT RESORT - Underbrush Is Cut Away; Unsightly Buildings are Removed

            The wooded area of the City Park is no longer a jungle, but one of the most pleasant resorts in the neighbourhood, thanks to the efforts put forth by the city to provide a resting place for lovers of a quiet Sunday afternoon stroll. Superintendent of works David Philpot has worked wonders in clearing the woods of underbrush and in removing unsightly buildings and fences from the grounds. The city may now be said to own a park worthy of the name, a place of which every citizen will be proud when plans for its beautification are fully matured. Mr. Philpot has displayed considerable ingenuity in converting a formerly useless building into a summer rest house and in constructing seats in shady places form lumber salvaged in the tearing down of other structures in the last sage of decrepitude.
