My parents took us to Happy Hollow in the early 60's. I remember the picnic area with chickens walking around. I loved the Octopus, but my favorite was the Old Woman's Shoe House with slide. I'm planning on bringing my 3 grandaughters down!

Happy Hollow was our favorite place to visit when we were children. We spent many birthdays there.
