This is East Garfield Park in 1907, not to be confused with West Garfield park which is a town, or Garfield in general because that is a cat. In the early days they had activities such as canoeing, and just sort of sitting around looking at stuff.
In the background, there really isn't a lot of information on that building other than its either a boat house, or its the Garfield Park Cafe, though that may be the house directly behind that one with the red pointy roof.
Today however both those buildings are gone, I think the viewpoint is from the current domed building.
