Geneva On The Lake – The Landing
Posted by LOTGK on March 22, 2010
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.
