Description:
Ontario Beach Park in 1905. Located in the Village of Charlotte, which was part of the Town of Greece until 1916, Ontario Beach Park featured many rides and attractions as well as summer food options. Park attendance and popularity declined as the 1900's unfolded. The arrival of the automobile, several destructive fires and Prohibition all played a role in its demise. Around 1920, the City of Rochester acquired the land, razed the deteriorating structures and began plans to convert it into a city park.
