Lived there or at least it seemed as a kid.I lived in a neighborhood where many family's had a parent who worked there so I was invited to go many times. Wonderful,safe place to spend the day and did the miniature golf, went to movies that were shown. Mostly we went swimming and kept showing up at the snack bar. At one time they had fireworks inside the park. Many other things could be done. The clubhouse is all that is left and sits there looking really lonely. Wonderful memories. You are correct there was a thread way back and will locate it for you just for your entertainment.There are many younger people on here now and glad for the new input.

LMD& clamper I lived across the Stewart St. bridge in Edgemont and my best friend and I would go there almost every day and stand outside the gate and wait for someone to come and let us go in on their pass. And it was amazing how kind people were and usually didn't take long to get in. I remember the pool mostly but always remember feeding the huge carp off the bridge popcorn. They had miniture golf, shuffle boards and giant checkers too. GREAT MEMORIES
