Canobie Lake Park

Photo Gallery of New Hampshire's Canobie Lake Park


Take a tour of the lovely Canobie Lake Park in New Hampshire. The traditional amusement park is one of the few trolley parks remaining in the US. In the late 1800s and early 1900s, electric trolley companies often built picnic parks or "pleasure parks" at the end of their lines to generate additional revenue. Many of these parks, including Canobie Lake, evolved into amusement parks. While the trolleys are long gone, Canobie Lake Park is still providing fun and thrills.
