Lakeview Park

Royersford, Pa.

* * *

Lakeview Park was a small amusement park in Montgomery County, Pa. It was located on Walnut St. just off of Rte. 422 in Royersford.

It had a carousel, bumper cars, scrambler, tilt-a-whirl, whip, bubble bounce, ferris wheel, roto-jet, twister, sky ride, and a few children's rides. It also had a fun house and a roller coaster.

It had a lake with paddle-boats, and a train that ran around the park. In the earlier years there was swimming in the lake.

In 1975, the new Rte. 422 highway was built and it took away some of the parking lot.

The park closed in the late 1980's, but the ruins of the park are still there, in June 2000. From the road, you can see the ruins of the miniature golf course, the fun house, the lake, and various other unknown structures.

The ruins will probably not stand for long, though. In the middle of what used to be the parking lot, is a sign advertising a coming mall.

Lakeview Park has been replaced by the Lakeview Shopping Center. Kohl's, Giant, and Marshalls now stand where the park once operated.
