Closing Time For Kiddieland

By The Beachwood Amusement Park Affairs Desk

"Kiddieland, a vintage shrine to mild family amusement that started as a pony ride business in 1929, is closing Sept. 27," the Tribune reports.

We thought we'd take a look at Kiddieland via YouTube to supplement the history recalled by the park itself on its website.
