New site devoted to old parks in Niagara

Ken Jones and the Amusement Park Historical Association of Niagara have launched a new website, Niagara's Lost Amusement Parks.

The site will soon feature a section on Erie Beach, but for now has sections on Maple Leaf Village Park, Tower View Amusement Park, Whitewater Park and Wet And Wild/Prudhomme's Landing.
