TRINITY PLAY PARK
Located at Corinth and Cockrell Streets. Area 41 2 acres.
Cost of land, $8,500.00.
Established years ago in the Cotton Mills
District; this play park was the first park of its
kind for Dallas. It proved popular from the
start, and has been a real service in reducing
crime and improving the moral conditions of its
neighborhood. Owing to the lack of funds, the
first improvements consisted of a temporary bath
house and combination kindergarten and assem-
bly room. Later a Milk Station was estab-
lished here. In cases where mothers are unable
to purchase milk, it is furnished free of cost. This
institution is under the direction of the Dallas
Infants' Welfare and Milk Association.
In 1915 a new Field House, modern in every
particular and costing in excess of $20,000.00,
was constructed. The Field House contains
shower baths for both sexes, play rooms, reading
rooms and an auditorium fully equipped for pic-
ture shows and amateur theatricals. Free mov-
ing picture shows are given at this park three
times a week throughout the year. Rooms and
housing for the Dallas Free Kindergarten and
Day Nursery are provided at this park.
