Lake Compounce Theme Park, located in Bristol, Connecticut, has the distinction of being the oldest continually running amusement theme park in the United States. The interesting history of the park dates back to 1846 and includes, among many other notable events, the installation of Connecticut’s first ten-pin bowling alley, the establishment, in 1875, of the still continuing Crocodile Club, and innovations like the open air dance floor and thrilling Chris Craft speedboat rides.
In 1895 the restaurant served a full course dinner for $.50 and in 1929 boat rides were $.15. No wonder thousands came from all over New England to enjoy the scenic park. During the Big Band Era, dancing under the stars to the likes of the Dorsey band and young singer Frank Sinatra kept the crowds coming.

It is said that the carousel is the first and last ride - a baby is held astride a prancing horse and seniors enjoy a spin in the grand chariots. Take a nostalgic trip back in time and this music will have you smiling and singing along down memory lane.
