In the earlier part of twentieth century, it was decided to recreate the park by adding a number of other facilities. A playground was created in the park and the old rectangular reservoir was replaced by a great lawn. After this, a civic plaza and promenade was created which connected the two museums in the eastern and western borders of the park. After this, another major change was proposed in the year 1934 to create a new centralized city wide park system (Collinge, 1996).
