Description:
To waymark those now closed, lost, and abandoned places of enjoyment from our youth. Amusement parks and zoos offer many memories that we can look back on and share with others, but now that the parks are closed, all we have are our memories, so let's share them with our fellow waymarkers by listing them here.
