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.

Weren’t we always this excited to get into Paragon?
This will definitely be in the book; anyone recognize themselves?
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!
