GreetingsFromBertrandIslandIoA[Book: Martin & Laura Kane – 2000 – 16x23cm – 128 Pages – Many B&W photos, some colour]. Although Bertrand Island Park (Mount Arlington, New Jersey) closed in 1983, there is no place in northwestern New Jersey that is more fondly remembered. For some seventy years, the park thrilled youngsters and adults alike. Generations of school groups, church outings, company picnics, and residents throughout the region delighted in the wooden roller coaster, the magical carousel, and the scores of other rides and games. Chapter Points: The Mountain Lake Paradise; “Clang Clang Clang” Went the Trolley; A Dream Becomes Reality; A Bona Fide Amusement Park; Go Where the Crowd Goes; Never a Dull Moment; There She Is; Change Is in the Air. ANDY SHINE’S RATING: Good.
