The Park Board asks the Herald to state that driving or permitting stock on the park will not be tolerated under any circumstances. A large part of the park has recently been seeded to grass and if people will keep off there will soon be a fine lawn. The Park Board also wishes to have it perfectly understood that booze parties must stay away from the park. Or they will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. In a nut shell the Park Board wants the people of the city to co-operate with it in making the park a beauty spot and a joy to everybody.
