Artists honor Chicago’s historic Riverview Amusement Park
One graffiti artist has found a unique way to honor Chicago’s historic Riverview Park, recreating the amusement park’s famous welcome sign as a mural – and adding a unique COVID-19-themed twist. Riverview Park claimed to be the world’s largest amusement park when it opened on Chicago’s northwest side in 1904. For those who used to go to Riverview as children and still live in Chicago, they remember Riverview as the most popular amusement park in the city until its closure in 1967. Amuse126’s new mural sits near the intersection of Western Ave and Addison Street, exactly where entrances to Riverview Park once stood.
