A note from the director of "Whalom Park ~ For A Whale of a Time"
Since producing the dvd on Whalom Park, (of which hundreds of orders were processed from all around the country) I have also received hundreds of calls, emails, and folks stopping by to share their thoughts and memories of the wonderful times they had at the park. First loves, first dates, first jobs - so many stories, so many memories...
Please email us with your memories of Whalom Park. Or if you have any photos, video, etc. we will be happy to post them on our Whalom Park Memorial website.
Thank you to everyone who has shared their stories with us, and purchased a DVD.
The memories of Whalom Park will always stay with us.
What happened to Whalom Park??
Whalom Park closed after the '2000 season, and after 107 years in operation, remained closed. The rides were sold as was anything not permanently fixed to the ground. In 2006 the property was purchased by a development Corp. A multi-million dollar, 240 unit condominium complex is presently being constructed. Read the entire article here:
Soon 240 families will call 'Emerald Place' their home - but hopefully they will already know or learn that this wonderful spot of land was once called 'Whalom Park', where hundreds of thousands of families came to have a 'Whale of a time!'
