The amusement park is long gone, replaced by a play ground, but Moon Lake is filled with ducks and geese. Surronding the lake is a nice walking path and several picnic tables for those lazy Sunday afternoons.
At one point, a mural was painted on the wall under the stadium. This snap is of three of those panels (which include the train and the ferris wheel). Some of the panels have been defaced with graffiti and I cleaned them up with photoshop.
Mural Specifics: Mural 28' x 140' depicting midway of 1940s Idle Hour Park. Carousel, train, skating, zoo, pool, dance hall, bowling, fortune teller, Ferris wheel. Sponsored/painted by Phenix City Arts Council, Phenix City Parks & Recreation.
