May II (UP) — Ohio's system of roadside parks probably will bo Hie largest in (lie country by tiic end of the year II plans of the state highway department are carried out. It !>> expelled that by 1911 the stale will have about 350 parks, i Fifty-five additional parks are be- ' "IK constructed this spring and 104 more sites ate readily available. Originally, jit least one park was to be constructed in each of the stale's US countries, but the park idea became so popular that today there Is more than one park in many counties. In a block of eight: southern counties 40 parks have beejj laid out. Each park has n tested well, or water supply provided free by a | nearby city, covered by a rustic [shelter. There are two or more ovens or fireplaces and n> table for cadi oven. The average siw; of these parks by the , sides of highways is one and three-quarter acres and the largest is one of 10 acres located In the northwestern part, of the state. State Owns l/.iml AH land has been given to the state. Power companies contributed old utility poles and other construction materials have come from discarded highway department equipment such as old guard rails The labor .hn.s been furnished by j CCC and NYA youths and WPA ' employes. Registration boards at Ihc parks last year indicated that full approval was accorded by both Ohioans and visitors from other states. Out-of-state tourists made up 34 per cent of the park visitors. Dallas D. Dupre, Jr., highway department chief architect who fathered the roadside park idea iour years ago and heads the system today, said that he had ucvci heard a complaint from park visitors. A check showed there was an average number of visitors at the parks last year, of .10,000 n day, or 150 at each of the 205 parks. Maintenance men from ihn department check (he parks every day to see that they are kept clean and, ut night, state highway patrolmen make the rounds of all jinrks. Average Cost 51,200 So successful 1ms the,,park program been In Ohio that requests nave come from many of [lie big park states, .including California and Oregon. The average cost of a roadside park in Ohio is about 51,200. Dupre said tliat a program of roodslrte tables, similar to the Michigan plan, would be inaiig lira ted this year with (lie inient of relieving congestion at the parks until more can be constructed. This year between 180 and 240 tables will be placed. He said the\ were intended for persons who de shed lo stop only for a few minutes or lo cat their lunches.
