A NEW CITY PARK Wausau has a real park and play ground at last. It is located below the Big Bull Falls, on the west bank of the Wisconsin river, stretching from Sucker Rock in a long curve past the new municipal bathing beach and end ing near the plant of the Dodge- Hooker mills. At the east end of Por ter street, a wire cable suspension bridge is being constructed, connecting the mainland with the beautiful wood ed island in the river, which is covered with a carpet of green throughout the summer. A large open space with a background of encircling trees, invites the lover of the great out-of-doors to rest and recreation. This, also, is an ideal spot for picnics and all sorts of healthful games. Large trees, survivors of the days which knew not Wausau, raise their shapely limbs on high, and cast their grateful shade in widening circles be low. Stately elms and swarthy oaks, and trim maples, stand side by side, lending to the eye a picture of nature as she is when at her best. Splendid views are open to the eye on all sides, especially to the north, where the froth from the falls tinges the- blue of the on-rushing river. It is difficult to imagine a better lo cation for a park, which has nestled at our feet all these years waiting for the key that would unlock its portals to the gaze of all. The first step has been taken, and it now remains for Wausau to extend the boundaries of this park so that they will embrace Stack's island and Stewart’s island to the southeast, connecting them with rustic bridges, and with a little labor, producing a park system in beauty and extent second to none anywhere. Much credit is due the Recreation committee of the city council for start ing the park and bathing beach, and there is no doubt but that the two, so closely allied, will be frequented all summer by crowds seeking recreation and healthful enjoyment. The committe suggests as a name, “Recreation Park” for the new play ground, but is open to suggestions from the public for a more oppropriate name. DENTAL MEETING The Centra!
