The Paragon Park Administration Building was the only structure from 1905 still standing when the park closed in 1984. It was located in the rear corner of Paragon and housed the park management offices. Unfortunately, we ran out of time to get the building moved off the site. The newspaper clipping is from July 16, 1985, days after the bulldozer reduced the structure to a pile of rubble.

Remember this view?
Last one in… misses out on the roller coaster!
This is one of our favorite photos from the Stone Family scrapbook — newspaper carriers from The Boston Globe rushing the back gate (note the Bargain Day tags stapled to their shirts).
Weren’t we always this excited to get into Paragon?
This will definitely be in the book; anyone recognize themselves?
The Blue Bunny… who remembers?
The Blue Bunny nightclub opened in the hastily rebuilt Palm Garden Grill/Captain Jack’s/Chateau space after the devastating 1963 fire.
We know Fats Domino, The Shirelles and Judy Garland performed there (Judy was just visiting, but put on a show anyway!).
Who do you remember seeing on stage at Paragon?
Just a few of the many images of Paragon Park in our collection… putting them all up here might crash the site!
