Ford Park on Green Island yesterday was the scene of many basket picnics. At an early hour in the morning every table and fire place was taken. Many automobile parties enjoyed the grove and with the swings and other amusements there, the children had good times. Good drinking water and plenty of firewood may be obtained there.
