The owner of Lesourdsville Lake, formally Americana, says the Monroe amusement park will likely never open again. Most of the rides will be sold and the site will be used as a recreational vehicle dealership.

I went to this park once and was waiting for it to reopen. Any ideas where the rides are going?

This is a missed opportunity. Lesourdsville should have been promoted as a family picnic and corporate event park. Small nostalgic regional parks have a place.

But you still love lamp, right?
In all seriousness, this is sad. I loved how old and creepy that place was. Let's not forget SE, either - It was an awesome coaster. :-(

With Gas Prices as high as they are, I hope his RV sales TANK and after he goes out of business he finds out he could have made more money running the Amusement Park! That would be Poetic Justice!

I will miss it greatly. I love the atmosphere of the good old amusement parks. This is truly a shame.

It's sad to see the old parks disapear! I still remember Chippewa Lake Park from when I was a kid. Fastest ferris I've ever been on. I'll miss them all.
