I have great memories taking my 2 children there back in the late 80's early 90's!! One cool fact I have for those that remember... I have a picture of my 2-3 month old son and I am holding him in the mouth of the lion water bubbler lol, That same bubbler is now at the Southwick Zoo in Mendon Ma. and my now 20 year old son recently went there and took a picture of himself (well only his head cause he's bigger now ! haha) inside the same mouth!! Very Cool!!

I miss Kings Castle Land as well and agree that they should have rebuilt it instead of adding a Stop & Shop. Another thing Im not to thrilled about is the new McDonalds on Rt 18!!!

Does anyone remember the water bubblers shaped like a lions head and the way you had to scream into the facet (aka lions mouth) in order to get the water to come out? I also remember going there as kid with the family JUST to take a float around the pond in the paddle boats. Ahh...those were the days.

Hi Trish, I was looking up Kings Castle and saw your old post. Not sure if you'll see this EVER but Saftler's just closed :-( It's a sad time in the good ol' USA.

I was so sad when they filled in the paddle boat pond with a parking lot, but, by your post, it seems they filled in the Castleland with a S&S??? I hope Saftler's and Peaceful Meadows never meet "progress."

My grandfather built Kings Castle Land. My father & grandmother would tell us stories about how it was run, the restaurant, fish pond and all the neat stuff in the park. It really warms my heart to see posts like this. Its been torn down for years and I never got to go but its memory lives on.

Lived in Hanson in the 70s from age 3-6. I just found an old pennant from King's Castle, and it brought back so many old memories. My mom used to take me there all the time, and I loved it. I remember being in one of the tepees and the monkey cage drove by as I was getting out and startled me. I jumped up and gashed my head on the tepee. The guy at the hot dog stand helped clean me up before my mom took me to South Shore Hospital. Good times nonetheless.

For those that are interested, the giant ice cream/clown (kind of creepy if you ask me) from Kings Castle Land is still around. It is located on Route 106 in front of an ice cream stand in Kingston.
