This park started in the late 1800s and came to have a zoo by 1895. Its popularity grew to the point where rides were added. In 1907, a formal Grand Opening occurred.
The only ride name which has surfaced is a "Shoot-the-Chutes". It was a great attraction in many Canadian parks of the era and consisted of a long ramp upon which flat-bottomed boats slid down to skim across a pond of water. The boats were returned by attendents to a lift mechanism which brought them to the top once more. Photos of such rides may be seen in the Dominion Park and Scarboro Beach Amusement Park articles.
It is not known how long this park existed but it was still operating at the start of The Great War (World War 1).
Thanks to Jim Abbate of Chicago for suggesting this park and providing information.
