Glenwood (Amusement) Park, Batavia, Illinois. (1900-ca.1928)

The Chicago, Aurora and Elgin Electric Line had built an Amusement Park called Glenwood Park in 1900 at their stop in Batavia, Illinois. It was competing against Laurelwood Park in Batavia. The park included a Steam launch that took park visitors for a journey on the Fox River, a large merry-go-round, a dining hall, swings, tables, and a covered pavilion.
