Blosser’s Island and early parks along the Millrace

Program by Karen McDonald and crew

Jennings Auditorium at the Greencroft Community Center
7:00 p.m. on July 19, 2018.

Cost: Free

What was Blosser’s Park? Where was it located? Who owned the land? Who operated the park and when? Was it always an island in the river? Who owns it now and what is its future?

These are just a few of the questions that Karen McDonald will try to answer as she presents what is known about the mysterious island that sits in the reservoir of the Goshen dam.

Also included in the program will be some history about some of the early parks and recreational facilities that were located along the millrace.

Where could you swim? Did Goshen have an Island Park?
What is a Tonawanda anyway?
