Adventureland Amusement Park. (Gone.) Addison Illinois USA. 1961 - 1977., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
The greater Chicagoland area, once had many little Mom and Pop owned amusement parks.
From 1961 until the park had closed for good in 1977, there was a little amusement park located at the intersection of Illinois U.S Rt # 20 / Lake Street and Medinah Road in northwest suburban Addison Illinois, known as Adventureland.
Adventureland was a seasonal operation , and was advertised on local Chicago radio, television and newspaper advertisements.
It was a small amusement park, that resembled basically..."A carnival in a little picnic grove".
