Summary

People in Ankara used to come to the Gazi (Ghazi) Forest Farm by cars, buses and the train. During fine weather, they wouldn’t even acknowledge each other and just walk. The small, pretty train station building was built in 1928 and designed by architect Ahmet Burhanettin Bey. During holidays, it was possible to see people having picnics under thick trees. .Marmara and Karadeniz (Black Sea) were pools which might have satisfied the need for a sea to some extent. People used to organize rowing and swimming contests between schools....Atatürk Orman Çiftliği Karadeniz Havuzu, 1939..Ankaralılar otomobille, kaptıkaçtıyla, otobüsle ve trenle gelirler Gazi Orman Çiftliği’ne. Güzel havalarda hiçbirine yüz vermez, yürürlerdi. Trenin durduğu küçük, sevimli istasyon binası 1928’te yapılmıştı, Mimar Ahmet Burhanettin Bey’in imzasını taşıyordu. Sık ağaçlar arasında piknik köşeleri oluşuverirdi tatil günlerinde. . Marmara ve Karadeniz, deniz hasretini bir derece olsun giderebilen havuzlarımızdır. Spor kulüpleri, okullar arası yüzme, kürek yarışmaları düzenlenirdi.
