Vollmar's Park

Bowling Green, Ohio 43402 USA


The pictures were taken in 2006 on a trip I took to the Vollmar's park in Bowling Green Ohio. The park was actually suggested to me by I believe a family member of the park's owners, or perhaps a close friend. I don't recall exactly. The park, closed in 2001ish, is now sitting along the river sort of rotting away. Without having ever been to the park, its tough to tell exactly what the atmosphere may have been like. The location, along the river, is pretty neat actually, but the layout of the grounds is unusual. The ballroom, many of the shops, and other buildings, are in one section, which requires crossing a bridge, then there is another section that looks more park like with a covered bridge, and lastly, a section right when you pull in that has an old hotel. Anyway... here are the pictures I took in 2006. Sorry for the blur, but this was before my tripod days.

A weird slotted mural above the dance floor entrance.
I'm assuming this was an entrance to the dance floor at one point.
