If you can't volunteer for a shift that week, you can help with the 2021 clean-up day on May 8th. During the clean-up day, volunteers will clean, move equipment, and get the park ready for opening day.

The non-profit park is located on 5979 Main Street, Olcott which was the site of the 1940's Olcott Amusement park. The park features a 1928 Hershell-Spillman two-row carousel, five vintage kiddie rides, and a 193 Wurlitzer band organ.

It was opened in 1999 and had changed a lot over the past 22 years. Since 1999, the park has added a replica studio of John Boeckmann who was a famous photographer who grew up in Olcott. The park also built The Tom Kelley Rustic Theater in 2008 to allow kids' theater show to take place.

The park also has a Ferris wheel and carnival rides. The rides only cost 25 cents because of the volunteers who run the park.

The park relies on volunteers to operate and is always looking for help. If you want to help you can Rosemary Sansone at 716-778-7066 or Bard Colley at 716-778-8284.
