1S41 as a midshipman Ho was retired
from active sen ice in February 1890
He passed through the successive
grades of the service to tho outbreak of

sition of a lieutenant in the navy and

made himself conspicuous for gallantry

ROCK CREEK PARK PUNS
Engineer Makes Report Re
garding Improvements
PERMANENT FUND IS NEEDED
Repairs Make This Necessaiy Work
Outlined for the Next
Fiscal Year
Mr V P Richards engineer in
chargo of streets yesterday submitted
to the Engineer Commissioner a report
of operations on the improvement of
Rock Creek Fark during tho fiscal yenr
ended June 30 last
Briefly described the work consisted
of the construction of two masonry
bridges the grading and macadamizing
of three miles of park roadway nnd
certain minor improvements At the be
ginning of the year the pnrk had iso
lated pieces of macadam road of con
siderable extent and the improvements
during the period covered by the report
were principally connecting theso pieces
of macadam together making a contin
uous way along tho creek from Kllngle
Road to the Military Road am thence
by -nay of return by the Military and
Ridge Roads
A new entranco to the park was es
tablished by way of Biagden Avenue
and a temporary bridgo built to make
tho new entranco effective
The amount appropriated for tho Im
provement of the park 37500 was ail
expended in tho cdmpletion of the
Boulder Bridge in the purchaso of ma
terial and the construction of tho ma
cadam road to which reference has been
made
The report roviews the past improve
ment of tho park and sets forth the
valuo of the work done by the District
chain gang
Follow Natural Lines
Mr Richards states that no compre
hensive plan for the improvement of
the park has been followed The drive
natural topographical
ways improved follow the
graphical features of tho park and ho
says they will naturally fit Into any plan
which may be adopted In the future
It appears from the report that 21330
was expended in tho park in tho fiscal
year ended June 30 1900 and 15000
during the year ended Juno 30 1001
Mr Richards recommends additional
work in the park for tho next fiscal
year amounting to 19350 and says
The most Important work In ray opin
ion is the completion of the macadam
drive along the banks of Rock Creek to
the northern limit of the park
Two permanent bridges arc neces
sary on the line of Beach Driveway one
at Rock Creek Ford and another at the
northern end of the park at an esti
mated cost for both structures of
25000 I believe too that Ross Road
should bo completed as soon as possi
ble as It Is an exceedingly picturesque
sldc hill drive leading from Military
Road to the mouth of Broad Branch
The present five and onc hnlt miles
of macadam roadway will in the near
future need repnlr and will have to be
made wider at a number of points A
stated sum should be appropriated each
year for the proper care and mainte
nance of theso roads The road from
Biagden Mill to the Military Road has
been in use for two years and al
though still in good condition Is be
ginning to show signs of wear The
road also needs protection from flood
by a wall at certain points where the
bauk is high and very near the waters
edge
An additional sprinkler Is very much
needed as the experience of the past
shows that one sprinkler cannot
take care of the present roads
Footpaths Through Park
A new feature of Improvement that
now suggests itself is the construction
of footpaths through the park leading
somewhere near and in the general di
rection of Beach Driveway but on the
opposite side of the creek If a start
can be made during the coming year It
Is suggested that the work be com
menced at Kllngle Ford and be carried
northward as far as any appropriation
would allow and It Is believed that at
least 10000 should be allowed for this
work which would also include the
building of places of shelter along the
lino of the path
There are a number of fine springs
In the park which need paths leading to
them and likewise some shelter above
them to prevent leaves nnd other sub
stances from falling into them
The Pierce Mill dam which was a
very pretty feature of tho creek was
washed away during the high water of
December 1901 leaving the ereok bed
and banks near tho mill In a rather un
sightly condition A new and more por
mancnt dam would cost about 2C00 an 1
by use of boulders could be made more
attractive than tho old que
Bridge Is in Danger
Tlie entranco to Biagden Avonuo is
now made over n temporary bridge
which Is liable to bo destroyed by any
high water and It is suggested that a
more permanent connection lo mado
with the avenuo by extending it alorg
the creek to the Pierce Mill bridge
It is recommended that some stonn
be taken looking to tho location nnd
mapping of particularly attractive
points in the park so that any ln that
might be adopted in tho near future
would havo regard to exceptional places
like the magnificent bunch of oaks and
chestnuts now standing Just west of tho
middle service reservoir The imps of
the United States Const and Geodetic
Survey have been used with excellent
results as an aid In past work but they
are on too small a scale for a very de
tailed study and a larger set of work
ing maps should be acquired as soon a3
possible
