- A SUMMER DESTINATION IN A CITY SETTING 32:35
Riverside Amusement Park in Indianapolis closed for good in 1970 & was demolished in 1978.
It’s place among the city’s attractions gone but not forgotten is revisited in this installment of The Primrose Chronicles podcast lore.
So sit back and listen as host & narrator, Marty Young, recalls the sights, sounds & smells of the Circle City’s singular place for thrill rides for over 60 years.
The episode takes a sobering turn at the end as Marty acknowledges and briefly engages in a story reflecting his realization, all be it late, of the sad and embarrassing reality of racism in the park’s operation which some would say also led to its demise.
It hoped the entire history of Riverside can be recognized for what it was and, in the listening, serve as a cautionary and directive tale that can help bring together hearts and lives as all are children of God.
Enjoy & blessings!!!
