Kiddieland Amusement Park. ( Gone.) Melrose Park Illinois USA. July 2006., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
I took this photo after work one lovely Springtime afternon, back in May of 2006.
A popular local seasonal family attraction for many years, was the famous "Kiddieland Amusement Park" in near northwest suburban Melrose Park llinois.
Time was running out for Kiddieland when I took this photo in 2006, as the park would close for good on Sunday, September 27th, 2009. Today, the former Kiddieland Amusement Park site at the northwest corner of First and North Avenues, is now the site of a Costco wholesale warehouse club store.
The gasoline powered Kiddieland Limited 1950's era American streamlined passenger train from the Miniature Railroad ride, is viewed rounding the curve east of the boarding station, in the east parking lot alongside First Avenue.
