Schuylkill Park

Pottsville, PA (Schuylkill county)


The 1922 reunion was held at Schuylkill Park, also known as Dream City. This park located just outside of Port Carbon was called both Schuylkill Park and Dream City. It was a popular destination in the 1920s and 1930s. It contained a roller coaster, dance pavilion and other rides. The park appears to have gone out of business in the late 1930s, as some articles say The Dips ride was in the park only until 1937. We have been unable to find pictures or postcards of the park so far.
