Hello everyone. Today I am writing my second story and it’s about Riverview Park in Chicago. if you are wondering why I am writing about a place that I never visited, I will explain here. Riverview Park opened in July 1904 and became one of the biggest amusement ever built at that time. It closed in 1967. I never visited the park since I was three years old when it closed. As I was growing up, I heard stories from several people older than me that told me about Riverview. They told me about The Bobs, Jetstream, Fireball, Comet, Silver Flash and other roller coasters. Other rides and attractions were The Tunnel of Love, Aladdin’s Castle, The Ferris Wheel, Flying Turns, Shoot The Chutes, and others. In 1983, I enrolled at DeVry Institute of Technology where Riverview Park was located. I was too busy studying and attending school that I didn’t give Riverview a second thought. Someday I would like to go for a visit at DeVry, which the original building had been torn down and it was rebuilt at other places in the area. There is a shopping center, a police station and other business establishments there now. There is a sculpture entitled Riverview by local artist Jerry Peart stands in front of the police station. I have been posting photos of Riverview Park on my Vanished Chicagoland Facebook Page for a long time. The responses and likes of the photos have been astonishingly popular. I created a video about Riverview Park in April 2019. I gathered most of the photos online, read some books for references, and put it together. My video was featured on WGN Morning News on April 19 by Marcus Leshock, who is a huge roller coaster fan. I was very appreciative to him that he showed it on the air. That was one of my proudest moments in my life. I will continue to post photos of Riverview Park on Facebook, Twitter and my other social platforms. I wish I went there. I missed out a wonderful place that made an impact to everyone in Chicago. Thank you. Pete Kastanes-Admin of Vanished Chicagoland Facebook Page.
