MOther Goose Mother Goose Land Remnants

Mother Goose Land (or at least what is left of it) from the 1950s to the early 1970s was a kiddie park with a field like a bowl. Circling the bowl were little town stores and ghost towns. You could take a donkey ride around the bowl and peek into the buildings. Sadly, the little town stores and the burros are long gone, but Mother Goose has been restored to her glory.

[Rich, 03/03/2000]

September 2005 - Tricia reports: "Mother Goose Land is part of Fejervary Park (pronounced Fedge-er-wary). They have renovated this and along with Mother Goose is a small but nice zoo."
