If you lived in the Phoenix area during the sixties and seventies, then you remember Legend City. Legend City was our theme park.
Entrepreneur Louis Crandall envisioned a theme park similar to Disneyland. Legend City opened in the early sixties and lasted for twenty years. Through a succession of owners and bankruptcies Legend City entertained a generation of Arizonans until it closed its doors for the last time in September of 1983.
In this book, John Bueker tells a brief history of the park. He has also included a unique collection of photographs which document the park, the rides, the attractions, and the people of Legend City.
If you remember Legend City, this book will be a nostalgic reminder of that time long ago when Phoenix had its own theme park.
