West View Park, Pittsburgh, 1914 [Orchard Lake’s Flickr]
My parents told me about they used to go to West View Park when they were young. The park closed in 1977 (before I was even born) but I still got really upset about this when I was a kid, to know that there used to be an amusement park one could get to without having a car — West View was at the end of one of the trolley lines. I still really wanted to go there because I assumed for a long time that it had just been closed down, abandoned, and overgrown, but actually they built a strip mall there instead, with a rollercoaster track for its logo.
