For more than half a century, Margaret and Stan Nelson owned and operated this popular Wichita attraction.
In the days before television and air conditioning, the Nelson’s park offered fried chicken dinners, a swimming pool and steam-powered engine shows.
One of the trademark attractions at their park was a Wurlitzer organ with Louie the clown.
Their park also offered a miniature train and a wooden roller coaster, considered one of the last surviving coasters designed by Herbert Paul Schmeck.
