Before there were houses and the streets across from Fort Taber and Fort Rodman an Army training camp, there was Acushnet Park covering more than 20 acres of land there, as well as Dan's Pavillion across the street.
Both were owned by Dan Bauer. It first opened sometime around 1916.
The park had different amusement park style booths and roller coasters as well as other rides for kids.
The entrance was across from the beach on East Rodney French Blvd.
