A big improvement is added to the
city of Lakeland today by the com-
pletlon this afternoon of the asphalt
drive around Lake Morton. By to
morrow the drive will be open for
traffic, and a delightful spin may be
taken around this lake, where hereto
fore there has been only a very im
perfect sandy road.
With the completion of this drive
there is brought prominently to the
public's attention the possibilities for
park purposes offered by the shores
of this lovely lake, which now lies
not far from the center of the city.
There is much that might be done if
means were available; but in the
meantime, considerable improvement
that will add to the beauty of the
scenery, and the pleasure and com
fort of all, may be effected, with on
ly a small outlay.
With this In view, Commissioner
O'Steen and S. F. Wilkinson, super
intendent of parks have been confer
ring, and they hope to interest all
who own property around the lake..
and others who desire to have some
thing done for the generul beautlflca
tiou of the city, in some plans for
Immediate improvement. This would
embrace the setting of palm trees at
proper intervals, along the drive,
with water oaks for shade at ouch
points where they would not obstruct
the view from the streets, and where
they ' would fit Into an attractive
scheme. At tn early date Commis
sioner O'Steen desires to have a
meeting of these property owners
and other Interested persons, to ex
plain tho Ideas already advanced and
to bring out others; and notice of this
meeting will be given In this paper.
In a short time work will be pushed
on tho'drivo around Lake Wire, and
it is planned to organize a similar
association of the property owners
and citizens interested In beautifying
the suroundlngs of that lake.
