Meyers Lake Park

This park started in the 1870s and added its scenic railway in 1908.  I lived less than a mile from this park when the ballroom burned in early 1979, but unfortunately, at eight years old, I was unable to appreciate what had been loss.  A new history of the park has recently been published with all proceeds going to the Community Services of Stark County - should you wish to find a copy, you may try calling 330-833-8516 or searching for the following online.
