About the book:
Between the covers of this book lies the history of the amusement park that was situated on the shore of Reeds Lake in East Grand rapids, Michigan, from 1903 through 1954. The story of the background, entertainment, amusements and events of Ramona Park is told through narrative, photographs, newspaper clippings and stories. The people who attended the park are passionate about their memories of it, and it is the sincere hope of the author that a journey through this volume will be like a journey through the park once again. Likewise, perhaps for those who did not go to Ramona park, it will provide a good sense of having been there.

Gail spent 4 1/2 years gathering information and images from libraries and historical archives, interviewing people and putting together the story of this remarkable amusement park.
