Boyd Park of Richvalley, Indiana

Sunday, August 12, 2001 7:59 AM
Has anyone ever heard of Boyd Park in Richvalley, Indiana. It was situated on the Wabash River one mile south of Richvalley. It operated early in the 20th century and had a Scenic Railway Coaster. I am having an impossible time finding any info on this defunct park.

I read an small article in a newspaper once about this. The park I think started out just as an average park with no rides at all. They soon added a few rides and got a small scenic rollercoaster that only went like 7 mph or something like that. The great deppresion though caused this park to close.

No, everything is gone. I looked for remnants of cement or anything and I did locate a few things that I photographed, but I need to go back to check it out and talk to a few locals.
