Old Waterparks

Post by LdScotsman » Fri Jan 18, 2008 3:15 pm

We've had a few go by the wayside in the Cleveland area over the years. Two that I remember were Wildwood and Dover Lake. Wildwood closed sometime in the 90's I believe, HERE is a link to a bird's eye view of what it is now.

Dover Lake only closed a couple of years ago and most of the stuff is still on site, the wave pool is hard to miss. HEREis a link to an aerial view and you can also do Birds Eye to get a closer look. Yes, there were even a few small kiddie rides there as well as a kiddie coaster.

This was a subject on another site and I'd thought I'd share it here as well.

It looks like Dover lake is at the TOP of a ski area. Looks like a second ski area just down the street.

We have to consider this park ( Dover Lake ) as the old one, but there are still many rides that most of the kids can have fun. It is just abandoned so sadly now.... :(
