Surprise! I’m talking about Riverview Park! (R.I.P.)
Absence makes the heart grow fonder – Sextus: I firmly believe in this, and not just with relationships! It’s with people’ing as a whole. When the doors are safely flung open again, perhaps next spring, I believe there will be a huge resurgence of social entertainment. So, I thought of the anniversary of this month’s topic opening (July of 1904) and figured it would be a fun opportunity to share this fascinating bit of history with you! My dad worked in the arcade area in his late teens and loved his job. (I worked at Kiddieland for a while, too.) Riverview was gone by the time I was born, so I never got the opportunity to witness such a cool place that was just a bus ride away.
