SUMMARY

Hilarity Hall, the Casino, the Dixie Flyer, the Whip, Clyde Beatty's Big Cats, & the huge Crystal Pool - all of the familiar sights, sounds, & personalities bring back memories of Summit Beach Amusement Park -- "Akron's Coney Island." This paperback publication 180 pages in length, is profusely illustrated with 180 vintage photographs of one of northeast Ohio's largest amusement parks. From its earliest days as a quiet picnic resort to the faded glory of the 1950s, Summit Beach was a familiar gathering spot for generations of Summit County residents. It began with a splash just after World War I, a jewel of an amusement park on the shores of Akron's Summit Lake. Over the years, the park struggled through economic hard times, wars, good & bad management, cataclysmic fires & accidents, passing fads, & community celebrations. The history of this great amusement park is not only the chronicle of a business venture, it is the story of a nearly universal experience - regardless of one's nationality, race, gender, religion, or economic background, almost everyone has memories of days spent at amusement parks. The author's exhaustive research, interviews & photographs, & entertaining writing style will fascinate both scholars & popular audiences. ISBN 0-9621895-9-6.
