Dreamland Roller Skating Rink

The Dreamland Park Skating Rink was located at 801 Freylinghuysen Avenue in the Dreamland Park Amusement Park. The postcard in this blog heralds the Fall opening of the rink in September 1936. The front of the card shows an interior view of the rink , which had originally been built for dancing. The reverse of the card lists the features of the rink , activities and hours of operation.

The amusement park and rink were replaced, in 1941, by the Seth Boyden Terrace, a Newark public housing project. A “new” Dreamland Skating Rink was opened at 987 Freylinghuysen Avenue on Newark-Elizabeth border. This rink was destroyed by fire on October 31, 1965 having already been vacant for a year.
