Plastic Kiddieland Amusement Park sign salvaged from "The Scooters" ride. The Melrose Park Public Library. Melrose Park Illinois. Saturday, September 29th, 2012.

I took this photograph recently, in the 2nd floor meeting room of the Melrose Park Public Library building.

A local Chicago area group known as The Melrose Park Historical Society, has done more than it's share to help preserve the memory of the former Kiddieland Amusement Park, and other things of local historical interest to the village of Melrose Park Illinois.

This plastic sign, was originally from the Scooters ride at Kiddieland Amusement Park.
Several artifacts from Kiddieland, plus a salvaged portion of the neon Kiddieland sign that stood at the northwest corner of North and First Avenues until the amusement park had closed in 2009, can be seen at the library.
