Description 

The park began as a private enterprise in 1892 and continued as a private operation until 1920 when the land was donated to the City of Green Bay. The city leased the park to a private operator until 1950, and the city has been running the park ever since.

It features 45 acres of parkland with 16 rides, 7 shelters, a dance hall, rest rooms, picnic areas, playground, softball and volleyball areas.

The rides include a Theel Classic All-Metal carousel from the 1960s and a Miniature Train Company railroad.

The video is technical in nature and intended mostly for miniature train lovers.

There is nothing in the video but the G-16 train in action and its running through Bowness Park in Calgary, Canada, about 8 miles from the downtown core.

(Hint: Calgary is sometimes known as "Dallas North" and for US visitors, has full consular facilities and it is one of Canada's major cities with 1.5 million population).
