Dr. F. W. Nelson was the original owner/operator of Kiddieland. The 1953 NAAPPB (National Association of Amusement Parks, Pools, and Beaches) handbook lists 2 major and 7 kiddie rides at Kiddieland. This data is assumed to be a few years out-of-date as a 1951 article in Billboard Magazine mentions 3 new rides were added to the park that year bringing the total to 12.
