Historic Houston Amusement Parks & Places in Historic Houston Posted September 29, 2019 8 hours ago, ernie5823 said: Playland Park was the one on South Main. Peppermint Park was initially in Pasadena & later between Gulf Freeway & Reveille (before I 610 built). It was a kiddie park. I worked there, running the rides, in 1960, 61 & 62 as a teenager. Thank you so much for the clarification.
