This Was Before My Time

It seems we needed a catchall for the things that just didn't fit well into any of the other forums, especially anything not computer-related.

This Was Before My Time

Postby TinyJWRinLC » Tue Oct 31, 2017 1:33 am

I've been here for almost twelve years now, so this was long before my time. If it had been built, I'm pretty sure I would have spent a lot of money taking my grandsons to the park.

I read that and found it very interesting. Long before my time also, as I moved here in 1976. I think I had heard it mentioned before, but knew no details. It was a very ambitious concept, and a shame it never came to be.

And it is not to be confused with the water park just east of LC, that also never came to be. Also a shame to see the equipment that was purchased just rotting away every time I drive E on I-10.
