  Another project delegated to Mr. Wyman was design of Washington
Park. It was in 1931 that Mrs. I). W. (Sara) Bergstrom, seeing the
need of a park in the fourth ward, purchased and deeded to the city
for that purpose, most of the real estate now embodied in Washington
Park.
  During 1931, also, the triangular shaped parcel of land, known as
the Water Street Park, was dedicated, with concrete retaining wall
and fence.
  In the same year the first of many Pet & Hobby Shows was staged
in Riverside Park, with Otis Hayes the moving spirit.
               Build thee more stately mansions, 0 my soul,
               JIs the swift seasons roll!
               Leave thy low-vaulted past!
               Let each new temple, nobler than the last
               Shut thee from heaven with a dome more vast,
               Till thou at length art free,
               Leaving thine outgrown shell by life's unresting sea!
                                OLIVER WENDELI, HOLMES
