They Were Still There?

When I saw this article about Kiddieland Amusement Park closing, my reaction was “They were still there?  I thought they closed a long time ago.”

Still, I remember (vaguely, though) going there as a kid.  I’m sure it will be missed by the families that still go there.  (Apparently, even though I didn’t know they weren’t around anymore, they did enough business to employ 250 seasonal workers.) There’s really not much else in the Chicago area that offers that kind of family entertainment.

Anyway, for those feeling nostalgic, here’s a look at Kiddieland’s history.
