The dark trees in the center of this picture are on Rams horn island. The causway connected it to the land on the Worcester side of the lake at Lincon park. You can still see the stones on the island today if you stand on the shore of 11 Lake ave, Lake Park towers stands there today.

Hello. I am am member of the National Carousel Assocation. With a bit of research I found out that Lincoln Park once had a carousel ride. Does anyone remember it? What become of it? White City's carousel (Philadelphia Toboggan Company #59) relocated to Florida and was auctioned off piece by piece in the mid 1980's. The frame was recently resurrected and restored with all new wood horses/animals at Peddlers Village in PA. Another carousel from Worcester is located in the Carousel Center Mall in Syracuse New York (another Philadephia Toboggan ride). Could this be the Lincoln Park carousel? Thanks!

I remember White City. I belive one of the reasions for there closeing was due to the fact there were a few accidents there. I was there the day the planes on the chanes that used to go out over the water came off. It was a sad day.

Hello! My French Candian grandfather and my father (from Amesbury) had a boathouse on Lake Quinsigamond where they built wooden boats and my father raced (in late 1920 and 1930. My mother (from Worcester) met my father on this lake while her parents managed concessions and sold "tickets" for the dance pavilion. Does anyone have info on where the dance pavillion was located?

In answer to Ruth Buck. You might be talking about the dances held at Maronis Park which was and still is next to Maronis Park on So. Quinsigamond Ave. ~Marilyn

I remember Lincoln Park very well.During the 1930s the pavillion was owned by Frank Duffy a great entertainment promoter. I remember roller skating there and also dancing to Cab Calloways band. What great memories. Arnold Savatsky

In answer to Ruth Buck. Your dance pavillion may just be what was known as"The Bungelow" a dance hall located on a protruding bit of land overlooking the lake, on the opposite side of the lakem (accross it) from Mariounis Park .That is, not the Shrewsbury side but the Worcester side of the lake.It has been closed for many years and I guess now private property .

Does anyone know when the dance hall was built? Or know of any attractions before 1905? Thanks!

My grandfather, Fred M. Haas, built the Haas & Fenner boathouse with his brother-in-law. In looking at old census information when the street names are listed, the street my grandparents lived on by the boathouse seems to change from Turnpike to North Quinsigamond to Belmont. Can anyone explain why the name changes? Thanks.

Hi all. I'm trying to date a concert poster I have from the Cocoanut Grove Ballroom at Lincoln Park, It's dated "Fri. Eve'g, July 7". There are three possible years that July 7th fell on: 1922, 1933, 1939. I think it's too old to be 1939. Does anyone know anything about the Cocoanut Grove? Thanks!

Around 1905 an illuminated car took to the main streets of Worcester to advertise Lincoln Park.

the lakeside ballroom burned to the ground in may 1960, after the holy cross junior prom, which had a japanese theme using pillows instead of chairs, which was probably not a good idea in a time when everyone smoked
