A new park in town 1911.

A PLACE TO PLAY FOR THE CHILDREN.

Because of the help and charity of the Bishop Estate [? hui o Bihopa ma], an empty lot at the corner of Beritania and Smith will become on the 1st of February, a playground for the children, and a place for the public to enjoy some time at.
The land was leased by the Bishop Estate to the Kindergarten group for a dollar a year, and the length of the lease is for 5 years. It is like they gave it as a donation.
It will become a fine place to play for the children in the future, because there are many who gave their assistance to make this a good place for the children. For instance, swings will be build, as well as other things children play with. There also will be built a place for them to relax and a bathroom.
This idea sprang from a number of people, to set aside a place for the children to play, because of the number of accidents that happened when the children played in the streets. And with the number of houses being built increasing, the only place for them to play are in alleys. And as there are all kinds of filth piled about, that is not good for their well being. But the children of this area will be blessed with this large place suited for them to play without being endangered by the cars on the street.
