  1. I work at Four Freedoms that used to be where Playland was. A lot of the equipment is still in the lake because it was too much trouble to move.

  2. This picture is looking south on Greenwood Ave. and 132nd, this was the entrance to the west parking lot of playland, I was born and raised in the Greenwood district in 1935, Aurora Speedway was on the East side of Playland on 132nd and Aurora Ave no.

  3. People laugh, but Playland and other amusment Parks in the USA were actually fun places for kids. In these times most parents give their children devices or Disney movies for something to do.

  9. Ah…. what good memories. Remember the shoot the shoots (is that right?) Ride?
    My brother was a paperboy for the Seattle P.I. On special days the paper would give free tickets for them & their families. We lived in Rainier Valley so it was quite a distance for us.

  12. ❤️❤️yeah Terry Johnson, most people are not originally from the RB?? But are so quick to jump in and judge…
    I can Specifically remember in the mid 80s going up to shorewood and it was common practice for “Johnny BLAA BLAA or Jenny jaw dropper”
    To have a rifle or shotgun rack in the back or side window..
    And there was never an issue with that ever!!
    See back in the day the RB was not considered shoreline? It was called unincorporated king county there was innis Arden, Richmond beach, and on the other side of Aurora was considered north city? But all of that changed when Matt Wright killed his girlfriend with help of others!!
    (A totally different story for a different time)
    But soon after they could raise a wand shoreline became a city!!
    And besides that horrific incident, I don’t think that any home owners, life long residents or just plain people were happy with the city stigma!!

  17. My next door neighbor has wood from that place as they tore it down, he used it in his garage for walls, still standing. Rides were a dime I think.
