Salem Willows Park

Local nameSalem Willows Park
LocationEssex County, Massachusetts, USA

Salem Willows is an oceanfront neighborhood and amusement park in Salem, Massachusetts. It is named for the European white willow trees planted there in 1801 to form a shaded walk for patients convalescing at a nearby smallpox hospital.The area became a public park in 1858, and in the twentieth century became a summer destination for residents of Boston's North Shore, many of whom escaped the heat of the city on newly popular streetcars. Many establishments on Restaurant Row, the park's north side, served fresh seafood, while a carousel with carved flying horses was another special attraction at an amusement park called Kiddieland that survives to this day with a few other rides that are for children only, as well as a miniature golf course. Although the last of the original restaurants closed in the 1960s, there are still numerous take-out stands to choose from. An ice cream stand near the ocean is one of those stands.
