Geauga Lake Park

Geauga Lake Park was a Northeast Ohio institution from 1888 until 2007. I can't tell you how many times I went there growing up. Little did I know that 2006 would be my last trip to the park. After the 2007 season, the park was dismantled and all of the rides were either demolished or auctioned off. Geauga Lake's Wildwater Kingdom is still there, but it's not the same without all of the rides, theaters and games.

Below are some photos I took on my last visit to Geauga Lake Park in 2006. The map comes from the wonderful site Geauga Lake: Today & Forever. I recommend checking out the site to see lots of old photos and park maps.

You can also read more on Wikipedia.
