Originally created as an "electric park" by trolley-line operators to enhance ridership, Forest Park was once Hanover's star amusement attraction.Sitting on 24 acres south of the borough on Baltimore Street, it boasted a world-class merry-go-round with 52 hand-carved animals, the Greyhound roller coaster, a Kiddie Auto Ride and other electric amusements. It also featured a baseball diamond, roller rink and horseshoe courts, as well as picnic tables and shelters that could accommodate up to 3,000 people. ("Hanover Evening Sun")
