The Kiddieland Limited passing into the night. Kiddieland Amusement Park. Melrose Park Illinois USA. September 2006., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
I took this photograph at the former Kiddieland Amusement Park in Melrose Park Illinois, way back in September of 2006.
Summer is over now, and Kiddieland is now only open on the weekends until the end of the season, until late October when the park closes for the winter off season.
With early darkness during shorter seasonal daylight hours, the Kiddieland Limited train ride, departs for another run around the park's perimeter approximately an hour before closing time.
Kiddieland closed for good in 2009, and now this is the site of a Costco wholesale warehouse club store at North and First Avenues in Melrose Park Illinois.
