Overview


Willow Grove Park illustrates the fascinating history of one of America’s most famous amusement parks. Willow Grove Park was built in 1896 as a way of encouraging people to ride the trolley on weekends. This ingenious concept proved a remarkable success, and the park set the standard for providing first-class entertainment and amusement. Here John Philip Sousa, Victor Herbert, and Arthur Pryorgave daily musical concerts, while various rides thrilled those seeking more rigorous fun. Through a wide range of images, Willow Grove Park captures the rich history of this well-known icon.
