Geneva On The Lake – The Landing

Posted by LOTGK on March 22, 2010

Geneva On The Lake - The Landing 2007

Geneva On The Lake, once a hot spot location for all ages lies dormant under a melting shroud of snow. In October of 2006 Erieview Park was ripped apart and sold piece by piece at auction. All that stood in the aftermath was a pile of rubbish and dirt piles.

When we returned in the Summer of 2007, on July 13th, our wedding anniversary, we found the above bill board posted where Erieview Park once stood. Reading the sign, it promised many wonderful attractions. We are still waiting for these attractions!

2008 brought bulldozers leveling the land and stripping away all that was left of the land. It became a huge dirt bowl and when it rained, a muddy mess.

In 2009, the Ferris Wheel returned positioned in a new place behind the Firehouse Winery. Rides were $2.75 each. The rest of the area was still a barren wasteland. As promised on the sign above, there was no Festival Plaza, no Boardwalk, no Amphitheater, no retail shops, no Food and drink locations, no Microbrewery. Only the Ferris Wheel. In three years time, only the Ferris Wheel.

Coincidentally, the sign above was taken down. Probably to avoid other people posting updates on it like this blog.

We will be heading up to Geneva On The Lake once again this Summer to have lunch at the Time Square restaurant and dinner at Eddie’s Grill. And to see the progress, if any on the promised Festival Plaza. I will report the findings of course.

    Bummer to see they aren’t going to do anything with the park. In todays business, if yo aren’t a large ass amusement park, you go out of business. To bad.

      Very true. In 2006 when the park was dismantled, I was hoping they would replace it with something fun. 2007, nothing, 2008 nothing, 2009 a Ferris wheel. I will be going back in May and hopefully more will be developed. But i doubt it.

    We had a park in Winter Haven called Cypress Gardens. It failed after 60 years. After it closed they made a huge stink about a landmark closing on the news and got investors to throw a bunch of money into it to get it back up and running. That was 2 years ago, last September it closed again. It turns out nobody wanted to go there after the excitement of the initial grand re-opening wore off. Maybe it’s better this one failed before the owners set sail across lake Erie on a ship that’s already sunk once before.

      Agreed that the park wasn’t all that and a bag of chips. However, now where the park used to sit is a pile of dirt and weeds. A rebirth of the space was touted with all kinds of wonderful night life activities. So far, three years plus, nothing. It has to hurt business, and the area needs all the business it can generate.
