I guess no one remembers the old Lakeside Amusement Park? It was near mohawk park on 36th St and Harvard intersection, on the southeast side, next to lake Yahola. I remember my dad having his Texaco company picnic there one year in the early 70,s. Also, drove some gokarts (Honda Odyssey's I believe) that someone had set up in the drive entrance, not long after the park closed. I sure had a blast at this place. I would love to see some pictures of when the park was in operation if anyone has any !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow, I grew up in the 60's and 70's about 40 miles east of Tulsa and I never heard of this place until you posted it. My parents were not the amusement park type so it was a rare occasion when we went to one. I didn't make that mistake with my kids, they practically grew up at Bell's and were nearly in tears when it closed.

I grew up in the 70's. and I remember hearing about it, but never actually went. It was either Bells or the old Springlake in Oklahoma City. Cool link. Interesting that the WIKI file on closed amusement parks doesn't list it. I'll see if I can correct that.

Here's a google earth aerial view from 1995 before it was all torn down:

The city is building a new warehouse/office building on the site now.
