From 1929 to 2009, Kiddieland in Melrose Park was Chicago’s favorite and one of the last family-owned amusement parks in the country. Join Edgebrook Branch for a fun presentation that will take you back in time. Relive the past with Cheryl Brown, as she revisits the history of the park with vintage photos. Re-experience the park through videos of the park on a busy summer day. Learn about the final auction of the rides, why the park had to close, and where the rides are today. Sponsored by the Edgebrook Community Association.
