The Landing At Geneva On The Lake

Geneva On The Lake opened Mother’s Day weekend signaling the beginning of the summer season. (Geneva is an old fashioned resort town geared to lay back relaxation and entertainment) Last year was the first year since the second World War that Erieview Park was not an iconic spot to land on at Geneva. It was demolished and sold off at auction in October of 2006.

We visited Geneva several times in 2007 and found a barren torn up stretch of land where the amusement park stood. This mini billboard sign offered hope to the vacationers of Geneva that something bigger and better was coming. “The landing” billboard touted a boardwalk, shops, restaurants, entertainment, a Ferris Wheel, scenic lake Erie view, and a carnival atmosphere.

We are planning to return this weekend, (Weather permitting) to view the progress of this new and exciting gathering place at Geneva. (And to order one of the jumbo size french fries at Time Square restaurant and dinner at Eddie’s Grill)

Quite frankly, I am not holding out any hope that any progress was made for the city barely allocates enough money to operate the resort at minimum requirements. it’s such a shame that the city council allowed the beautiful beach erode completely to a rusty steel barrier and broken cement breakers. The beach stretched for several miles with about 100 yards of white sand to the blue waters.

Knowing Geneva, I expect that the mini billboard will still be standing, a little faded from the sun, and plenty of graffiti to compliment the artists rendition of the Landing. Behind the sign, I expect to see barren land just like the year before.

The Grassy Knoll Institute will update when we return.

    We were there just last week. They haven’t done a single thing. Still dirt and mounds of junk. Eddie’s Grill was crowded but the rest of the shops were closed or not very busy. With gas prices, Geneva will be hard hit.

    Very sad. It looked like good old fashioned family fun, we need more of that these days.

    I am so old.

    Alas, I think I am going to be shocked when I get there. Either this weekend or another one in the near future.

    8 hours! From my experience, it usually only takes about 6. they must have been off their game that day.

    The weather was pretty crummy here this weekend and we decided not to go. Look forward to next weekend, Memorial Day weekend.

    And sorind, perhaps if you were wearing your thought screen helmet, you could have prevented this.

    Ive been going to geneva all 34 years of my life. I met my wife there. I miss the amusement park. I was hoping to watch my son play there. He got to experience it for a few years at least. The problem is that the lake council will not give the permits to get the project going. Thats the last that I heard. I could be wrong. But if thats the case. They should let woody(who has always put back into the town) move forward with the project. But I guess it just goes to show that now even small town politics in this country are screwed up.

    Just got back from Geneva on the Lake. Sadly, the city has done nothing to the new development, The Landing. I take that back, they removed the bill board touting the new Landing development.
    Bulldozers still litter the landscape. Debris is still stacked all over the property. Huge clumps of dirt collect weeds.

    I fear just as the city allowed the beach to erode, they are letting Erieview park and the new development become a distant memory.

    The problem in that town is that no one has the passion to finish the project. I has been to other resort towns in on the east coast and there was plenty of room on the property to rearrange the rides that were there and add the amphitheatre and shopping that the landing was supposed to provide. Now there is nothing in the town to make people stay and spend money in the shops that are paying for lease space in buildings. The town needs something more that food and arcade games.

      So true JR.
      When the amusement park was ripped from the premises, bigger and better projects were promised for the area. That was in 2006. Five years later, the land is still vacant and barren.
