I borrowed these from the Spring Ford Area Historical page. This is much further away from Amity than I normally post. Who remembers Lakeview in Royersford? I lived in Limerick for 10 years in the 70s and 80s and Lakeview was pretty much a shell of its former self. My stepfather worked here as a kid. I remember in the early 80s there was a BMX track there. Now it’s the location of Kohl’s and other shopping. ... See MoreSee Less

My Dad took us there several times. He loved the concerts. Good memories!

I never got to go there but I remember it well. I lived in Royersford and my grandparents in Limerick so I passed by it all the time. It was really neat.

I do! Rode the tilt-a-whirl 9 times in a row...relative got off, found a tree and threw up. Lollll. Fun memories. Company picnics, etc.

...Wild Mouse overlooked the cemetery across the street...thought I would end up there!!!

My brother raced his BMX bike there in the late 70’s

We tried to buy it several times, to bring it back to its glory

What year did the close?

Grandparents lived in Royersford! Family gathered every Sunday and had outdoor BBQ & all the beer you could consume. Grandfather had an outside cooler, grill, and hand dug, cement pool. Those were the days.

I do the company my grandmother worked for had their company picnic there every summer when I was little

I remember my grandmom taking my brother and I. We went on a spinning ride over and over and she had to sit by a tree as she couldn't go on anymore.

My grandparents lived in Rofo..I vaguely remember it when it was open.. more as a shell of its former self overgrown and in disrepair. It was not uncommon for me and my family to pass by there several times a week. I always thought about the people who had great memories of it in its heyday.

I worked there in the 80's. One of my favorite jobs, Lots of good times.

Never went there.we did not go to a park often. But we always went to Hickory park. Did anyone else go there,?

I grew up in Rofo in the 70s and 80s and never went there because my parents were convinced it wasn’t safe 😁

I went to Sacred Heart. Our school picnics would be held there each year. Good times!

My senior tech school class picnic was held there. Even in the late 70’s you could tell that it was on its way out...

Went there the last day of school.went to sacred heart grade school on Lewis rd.

The first house I lived in as a young child was a few blocks down the road on Walnut street

My Dad's company picnics were there!

My husband and his brother used to go almost every weekend back in the 60's

Grew up a block away!

Grew up on Royersford Rd in 60's & 70's. Remember it well

Worked there when I was 15. Until they realized I was 15 😀

Most people won't take the time to read this, I get it. However this is a great 15 minute read about the Amity Historical Society (not the current day Amity Heritage Society). This is pretty much the rise and fall of it and why we can never let this happen again. This is why we all need to support the AHS, because when it is gone......all we have are stories. We are thankful for people like George M. Meiser IX, Charlie Miller, Randy Van Fleet, Ralph Swoyer, Joe Kacanda, Tony Matassa and many others who either worked or are still working to protect our heritage.
