Gone But Not Forgotten: Riverside Park

In tonight’s Gone But Not Forgotten story, we remember Riverside Amusement Park. It began as a picnic grove in the late 1800’s before being bought by the Carroll Family in the late 30’s and blossoming into New England’s largest Amusement park. Riverside was considered a family park and still has fond memories for many in the region as a place for fun, relaxation and, in many cases, summer employment. Connecting Point Producer Dave Fraser talks with local historian David Checchi of Agawam to learn the history of the Park and to reminisce about a by gone era.
