CHAPTER I

THE PROBLEM AND DEFINITION OF TERMS USED

The growing importance of recreation has made apparent

the need for better programs, better facilities and better
leadership. The lack of adequate recreation akace for
Negroes in Tallahassee, Florida, greA~tly concerns all who
are interested in the development of opportunities for better
recreation in our modern society.
Recreation as a form of leisure is not new in our

democracy, Throughout history, people have alw:.y had some
recreation.
Newton D. Baker says, 'The control and finanoing of
reoreetion activities of almost every kind, I believe, is a
definite and proper city function."
Calvin Cooldige said, "Play for the child, sport

for youth, and recreation for adults are essenti-.l8 of
modern life. It is becoming generally recognized that the
creation and maintenance of outdoor recreation facilities
is a community duty in order th.'t the whole public might
participate in their enjoyment.


T Newton ., Baker, ,hj Playeround, September, 1912, p. 186.

Summary

The grown~ approotation of rnreo-tion r.nd its im-
portD.nee, its contribution to the well-beinc of the Individual

,-nd the comnity, and it recognition as : n eeenti-.-
service for ,11 is of vit-l isportc:nose. The activities in
the area of reorsertion hb e meet the desires of the comtmunty

to a limited extent ther%,foro, all individuals cannot

totally appreciate wht it betin olerea. To the young

children it ts fun; to edulta, it i ple sure; to society,
it is enjoyment, All of the: ee are evidence for more equips

meat, better facilities, tad more trained per.son.-el.
Equality of recre.;t13tnal opportunities in the way of

factlitieoas n aotivitie should receive a ch attention in the

area of variety, quantity, and quality,
The many boys nnd girl who h. e the privilose of

particip- ting in. pl ygaround activities s.oes not mean that

they ,de utely preclate whvt is beicn offered.
Tho problem is not one of recrettional facilltilen alone
such :,: pJt1Iysround., p..rks, recreational cnters, social settle-

be rvead near the Xerthvest Ieenatary Sohool. This
suggestion is beaset pA th fat that the property onf whit
this park is preosntly looated0 i privately oved, is ti e
uclss to tJh ror ida tate Ulaverity property, has no
pVraenot txtures looUat upon it, and it 1 anot large enough

will eest approx lately 10,000.00 with equipment, tfaolities,
and paesaent fixtures, Tb haTe a ooamnity center with
available equipment and facilities will help to solve the
ansa probleor of youth of the oity.

There Is a definite lac of interest in recreation on
the part of oivto and fraternal organizations, ohurohes anm
laymen of TallaMssee. The writer feels that until these
groups become lntereste4 in and mako their interest know
to the oity officials, there will alway be a lack of ferilie
tieo, equipment, an fd ds ftor reoreation for Xegroes in
Tallahassee,
Organized activities are very muoh in absence among -all
of the Negro playgrounds. This may be attributed In part to
the Slak of trained personnel and the eager pay which these
workers resoeve.
Xo pains should be spared in providing safety apparst
on all playgrounds. These should be located In onspaieous
places andd should include fences borderIng all streets
beading the playground, red sign td danger areas sauh
as the vswiming pool, padding utility poste inside the play
area and providing good, strong bleasher seats. These
bleaohor seats will aOat approximately $900.00.







55
The writer feels that the city should array liability
insurance coverage on *al playgrounds to gcard against
possible liability resulting frea injury to an indivldnal
whil on the playground and actively taking part Ian th
program.
It was brought out by thia stdy that facilities tor
a Nragr population of 8,805, vwhih io tentative, Tbeeuse
the census reports were not complete at the tie of this
inTvetigation, are inadequte to meet er t seds of the
eomutnity. aU eise of play rounaL that are neaessary varies
rith neighborhood population. NTo Yield a zi Ltal return,
areas and faeilitiesa st be properly l atead, adequate in
sise, have capable loaders and related to Oth e ty* Waster
plan. It is suggested that forty to serenty-fivoe squtr
feet should be provided for eash child, from the age of
aise and up. children up to eight years of age who are
to be eared for on the play arpe should have 5,000 square
feet or more. Out of the city*' reoreation funds should
soe fifty dllars per year to over injuries. These
funds should sore reo a tfoir ef liability asuranse carried
by the city em each playgraoud.
The fuadt for reereatton facilities should come from
the eity budget. Appreziately 3j00.00 per year sheoul be
alloe~te for rereationtal facilities for Negroes, that is,
the upkeep of the playgruna, ooerts, a ad beautification.

seat will eoie from th eity governments funde. Th e et

It is proposed that a plargrund be open for Negroe

Negroes in Tallahasaee should hve a skati ne rink and
