It's too bad the village performed so lackluster and lackadaisical to try to save this place for the kids. Typical for this disgrace of a town.

Don't worry the village will find a way to make money at the property. Maybe a strip mall or a strip club. It would be too much effort for them to try to keep an amusement park there for kids to have fun at.

Yes this is a shame that Kiddy Land has closed. I left Melrose Park in 1976 and moved to Florida. I took my son home in 2000 when he was 2 and I took him to Kiddy Land and it was great to remember I did the things that my son did and I remember having a great time just like my little boy was having.Im so glad I have all of it on video. One more great thing will be missed by all of us.One thing I had a harder time fitting on the train this time.

According to our local paper, they have approved the site for a Costo.

Six Flags in Gurnee has purchased the Little Dipper coaster. So that part still stays in the state, but either way, another good thing has been taken.
