The Capital Region's Beloved Amusement Park, Hoffman's Playland, Closes Today

After 62 years of providing
family fun to the Capital Region,
Hoffman's Playground is closing.

Eric and I drove to Latham (the northern section of Colonie) last week to say goodbye to this beloved fun park.

From the parking lot I can
see the Balloon Flight.

I, like thousands of local residents,  have fond memories of visiting Hoffman's Playland.

My brother, Al, drives the tank while I
enjoy the ride during a 1962 visit.
