MEYERS LAKE REVISITED.

MeyersLakeRevisited[Book: Jeffrey D. Brown & Raymond D. Fete – 1985 – 21x28cm – 192 Pages – Many B&W photos) Meyers Lake was the social and entertainment centre of eastern Ohio for nearly 100 years. Over its lifespan, Meyers Lake Park (Canton, Ohio) and the surrounding area offered a wider range of attractions, entertainment and recreational outlets than any other park in Ohio. It was an area of natural beauty, with peaceful picnic groves and the tranquil lake. By contrast there was the sound of merriment emanating from the various amusement park rides, including intermittent screams of excitement aboard the Comet roller coaster.
