And Proposition Is Now Before City
Commissioners For a Park on

Mayor Bowers said to a Herald man
today that he favored the purchase of
two park sites for Palestine He is
highly in favor of the Reagan Park
proposition which takes in part of
the Michaux property close in provid
ed a larger acreage can he secured
He wants approximately 23 or 25
acres taking in that portion of the
Michaux land lying south of the rail
road and north of Trinity street and
which contains about that acreage A
proposition is now before the com
missioners for the sale of that amount
of land which is considered reason
Then the mayor has in his posses
sion this proposition for a park in the
the surrounding property is so sub
divided that the residence will face
the park This ground is reached by
three streets Queen street Tennes
see avenue and Conrad street with no
streams or railroad tracks to cross
Queen and Conrad streets running
along the full length of this plot on
either side
Assuming the intersection of Oak
street and Tennessee avenue to be a
central point Mr Merrick city engi
neer makes the statement that the
distance from this point to the plot of
ground I propose to sell to the city is
4410 feet while the distance from this
same point by the nearest street
route to the nearest point of what is
known as the Michaux Park proposi
tion is 3530 feet making a difference
between the two propositions only
8S0 feett or two ordinary city blocks
This plot of ground is entirely covered
with a forest of native trees and it
can easily be provided with a perma
nent lake fed by springs On an aver

town he said is so located that
should a park site be chosen in either
the northern or southern portions ofL > >

vantage of that portion furtherest re

he thinks would be admirable To
secure and improve these sites would
take an outlay of 20000 to 125000
but the city could vote a bond issue
that would not be burdensome and
that would supply these much desired
This matter will come before the
