Lakewood Station & Pavilion

Object Year: 

The Lakewood Station & Pavilion opened in July of 1909. Built by the Four C's, the park expanded overtime to include a rollercoaster,  a merry-go-round and other amusement rides as well as exotic animals and a vast garden. Located in West Charlotte, visitors could take a trolley to the park to enjoy a boat ride on the lake or a dance in the pavilion. During the Great Depression, the park fell into disrepair and a flood caused the dam to burst and the lake disappeared. The rest of buildings were eventually demolished.
