Hersheypark Updates | April 15, 2017

With Park Boulevard being rerouted in 2016, a segment of old Park Boulevard was abandoned that is adjacent the main entrance of Hersheypark.

In the last week or so, a bunch of markers have appeared on this part of old Park Boulevard. What this means for this area of what now is directly part of Hersheypark’s property remains unknown for the time being.

Take a look at the map below to see pictures provided by Matthew Meckley in the Disney Lovers at Hersheypark group on Facebook.

Also, in looking through some information, I can relate a little history to what we’re seeing from these markers for underground utilities. There is a photo of a UGI gas line marker in Tram Circle, and I found a document from when UGI acquired the right-of-way to install that gas line in 1979. A short video is below to show you a little context. If you want to look at the 1979 drawing a bit more, make sure to pause the video around the 18 second mark.

I have a wide variety of interests, from sports to politics, music to Star Trek. I write about the history of amusement parks on my website, The Amusement Parkives, which I founded in 2016.
