 Overview
 Description
At this time only stonework and the pavillion remain, with a few exceptions. Each year more and more of the park rides were sold to other parks, and vandals ruined buildings. A large portion of the park burned in 1998, and the owner has bulldozed most of what remains. Still a lot of artifacts. Old trash dumps dating back to the 1900's yield old glass bottles.

     History
    Mountain Park opened as a outdoor park and botanical garden in the 1800's. It evolved into a casino, dance hall, zoo, and amusement park over the course of time. The park closed unexpectedly in the 1980's. The property was fenced off and remains today. Each year more and more of the park is destroyed or burned by vandals.

     Future Plans
    May become a gambling casino if the state legalizes gambling.

    The owner has been mining the adjacent Mt Tom Ski Area.
