Playland Amusement Park
Located just east of Greenwood Ave. and 132nd (south end of Bitter Lake) was the entrance to Playland. It was developed long before we were born and it included many attractions that we never knew existed.
Just south of Playland proper (125th and Aurora) and long gone before we arrived on the scene was The Automobile Roller Coaster Ride. It was up and running while Playland was being built. Watch the video...
Would you like to take a real nostalgic trip around Playland? If you were not already aware, FaceBook has a bunch of information on and about that amusement park. Here is that link...
