JOURNALING: During the first half of the 20th century, Buckeye Lake State Park (the “Playground of Ohio”) was THE place to experience “every amusement consistent with good morals and behavior.” In the 1940's to promote the park, free acts were offered including acrobats, parachute jumpers, animals, and even the famous Flying Wallendas family. Rides included the “Dips” roller coaster that went out over the water. There was a swimming pool, roller rink, and two ballrooms, the Lake Breeze Pier and the Crystal, which featured top bands of the era, including Tommy Dorsey and his singer, some guy named Sinatra.
The fountain at the North Shore parking lot used to be the centerpiece of the midway and is all that is left of that innocent fun era.
