Description

Dominated by a beautiful lake and waterfalls, Cascade Park is a former amusement park operated by the town of New Castle.

Cascade Park dates back to the 1890s, when Civil War veteran Levi C Brinton cleared part of the land for dancing, picnics and a steam driven, canvas top, Merry-Go-Round. It was later sold and turned into a landscaped amusement park featuring flower beds and a lake among the dance pavilion, open air theater, small zoo and plenty of rides.

The town of New Castle eventually took ownership of the park, which ceased to be an amusement park in the 1980s.

The park still offers swimming, dancing, and a nice picnic grove, just as it did back in the 1890s. The former carousel building and outdoor ampitheater where events are often held.
