Beech Bend Amusement Park, Bowling Green, Kentucky

I was about an hour away from Bowling Green, Kentucky for work and had three hours before my next appointment so on the spur of the moment I headed on down for a quick loop through the park in forty-five minutes.

For those of you who don't know about Beech Bend on and off again it has been the Bowling Green area's amusement park since the 1940's.  It's been open and it's been closed as the park has moved through a string of several owners including country singer Ronnie Milsap.  The park is now owned by the Jones Family who have been working on slowly building up the park since the late 1980's.

The first difference that I noticed from my last visit was that the park's classic Ferris wheel no longer resides here at the entrance to the park.

Ok, I don't know which company makes the "evil clown" as I call them trash can lids but this is the third park that I have been to this year that has one.  The clown pictures my parents put on my walls as a kid always freaked me out and I'm still a little freaked out by them.
