The history of the Enchanted Forest is one of magical beginnings. When it first opened in 1955, Ellicott Citya€™s storybook land became the first childrena€™s theme park on the East Coast. Young visitors could climb aboard rides like the Little Toot tugboat, Mother Goose and Ali Baba or encounter animals like peacocks and burros. Upon its closing in 1989, Marylanders who cherished memories of the Enchanted Forest were deeply disappointed. However, many of the parka€™s beloved figures were moved to nearby Clarka€™s Elioak Farm, where they were restored and displayed to the delight of new generations. Even today, the farm is a popular destination that evokes the whimsical spirit of the iconic park. Local author Janet Kusterer and Martha Anne Clark of Elioak Farm trace the parka€™s history through vintage images and interviews with the Harrison family, former employees and visitors.
