Mountain Park: Holyoke’s Beloved Amusement Park, Now on Display

October 1 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Join the unveiling celebration of a scale model of Mountain Park.

Residents and visitors of all ages are invited to help inaugurate a new permanent exhibit at the Holyoke Heritage State Park Visitor Center.  This open-house style event will take place on October 1, 2022, from 1:00 to 3:00pm in the lobby of the Visitor Center.

The primary focus of the exhibit is the six by two-foot scale model of Mountain Park.  It replicates Mountain Park as it was in 1980.  People who have grown up in the region will be able to reminisce about the rides and features of the park as it was in its heyday.  Memorabilia from the amusement park such as concession prizes, park banner, park brochures, tickets, photos and publicity material will be on display.  A video of Mountain Park will be on continuous play.

The guest of honor is Jay Ducharme, author of Images of America: Mountain Park and creator of the Mountain Park model, which was four years in the making.
