Here are a series of short vids I took when I took the family over for some Dadipark fun..they are all best viewed with the sound down due to being shot using an old compact that seems to catch the wind too easy. 1: 2: 3: 4: 5: 6: 7: 8: 9: 10: 11: 12: 13: 14: Seriously folks,sorry for the clownery but we loved playing here very much and the video was only a bit of fun.
Dadipark began life in october 1949 with the help of Pastor Deweer of the nearby cathedral.The rides were mostly powered by the kids themselves which no doubt enhanced their physical side unlike those of today.In later years,the park was run by local retailers and with that eventually some rides became mechanical.In 2003 however,a boy was reported to have lost his arm riding the Nautic Jet which caused the Park to close,but this remains pure myth.The Park almost opened on several occasions after,but never actually did so.We visited in early spring to take advantage of not having so many leaves on the trees so you can see all the swings now hidden by saplings.I have included some Post cards I have showing the Park before closure. Thats just a few from a massive collection from the two trips we made here.I understand,as of July 2012,the site has been cleared sadly. Many thanks for looking.
