Location:The park stretched across Clark's Point from West Rodney French Boulevard to East Rodney French Boulevard just north of Fort Taber.
Notes:The Hurricane of 1938 destroyed the roller coaster and the dance pavilion.  Some accounts state the park continued to operate after the 1938 hurricane, but these same accounts state that remains of the roller coaster existed in to the mid 1960s.  Aerial photos from 1961 confirm the former park land was fully developed with homes by this time.
Owner / Operator:The park was originally owned by Dan Bauer.
