Historic Newton Presents: 100 Years of Newton Parks and Rec

Newton was a foremost player in the parks, playground and organized sports movements of the late 19th and 20th centuries. Mike Clarke’s talk traces this history, led in part by Newton mayor Edwin O. Childs and its first and longest-serving superintendent of playgrounds, Ernst Hermann. Period photographs illustrate their philosophy of the role of play in children’s development. Part of the Newton History Series. Co-sponsored by Newton Conservators.

Programming on Comcast Ch. 9, RCN Ch. 13, Verizon Ch. 33
