^Yep, that is exactly where it was.

I was pretty young (6th grade), but I remember going down a sand road through dense pine forests to get there (precursor to Sidney Marcus). It was very pretty.

That's about all I can remember, too. I think they had some ducks there?

Or maybe that was Piedmont Park.

'A long time ago' at any rate. lol

I think they did have ducks, TAH.

I also remember a very tall, metal sliding board into the lake (you know, the kind that drips water to speed you up?)

I remember my brother had his 5th birthday party at Storyland in 1961.
I remember a small roller coaster and story book characters that spoke to you. I don't remember where it was.

I remember the King and I at the summer park back in 1960's. I remember swimming lessons at Chastain Park back in the 1950's. Is the park still around - I've moved away in the early 1960's.

Absolutely it is still around, and it hasn't looked as good as it does now in years.

You would probably not recognize much of the area anymore, with the exception of some of the older residential areas.

Grady High School is alive and well and nearer midtown than Little Five Points. Bass High School was the school near Little Five Points.

Fairburn High School was actually Campbell High School for the old Campbell County that merged with Fulton during the depression years. Until it merged with Palmetto High to form Creekwood HS, it had to be differentiated from Campbell of Smyrna which is still in existence.

Bass High School has now been converted to lofts for residential living.
