Email Local Hostorian Keith Lockhart: keith106@rcn.com . He has a lot of local pictures, quite possibly of Playtown Park. I have a couple of old matchbooks from Playtown Park but no pictures.

Playtown Park - great childhood memories from the early and mid-1960s.
Whenever we visited my dad's two sisters in Media, we'd all go to Playtown Park.
I'd love to find some photos of that place, too!

I loved Playtown Park, especially the roller coaster. I may have some family photos from there, but have to look through my moms's things.

I not only lived right behind Playtown Park but worked there briefly too. I operated the kiddie boat ride. The owner's name was Mr. Yudhi, he also owned the Lord Baltimore apartments built right behind the park prior to the park being sold to Strawbridge and Clothier for their discount outlet "Clover". The managers name was "Reds", yes he had red hair. Sorry, no pictures, only these mental ones, hope it helps.

I remember Playtown Park. I would also like some pictures of it. I had the best time there when my dad would take me, my brother, and some of the neighborhood kids. If anyone has any, please let me know, and I'll give you my email address. Thanks.

I remember if we were good we got to go to Playtown Park as a really special treat. I loved to play ski ball with my dad and also remember the roller coaster. We went to the Pizza place across the street for dinner. What fun memories, everytime I visit my cousin who now lives behind Kohl's I think of those fun times...it was great remembering with all of you....

What happy childhood memories of Playtown Park. I rode the train til I couldn't stand no more. The boats were a fav too. If anyone has any pics, public or private, I would love to see some. I have been looking for a while now and have not found anything. I hope someone has some photos, anything from that wonderful park.
