he kid in everybody has memories of the good times. Many of mine are about an amusement park where I grew up in Elmira, NY. There must be hundreds of thousands who experienced it as I did. For over a century, Eldridge was a Wonderland - and from the beginning, it was where just a dollar could last all day.

In 1997, with donations a group Eldridge afficionados like myself, I built this website as a place where the generations of Eldridge kids could get together and compare notes. That's how I did literally find out that there are so many who remember Eldridge. Some have sent me their photos and stories. I hope you'll spend some time here and reminisce with the rest of us as we remember the magic of Eldridge Park in its heyday.
