International Street Landscaping


Recommended Posts

Believe it or not, I have another question about Kings Island history.

When and why did KI change the landscaping in International Street. If you aren't sure what i'm talking about, take a look at these photos:

See what i mean? In the first picture the walkway was parallel to what i think is a slanted slab of concrete with shrubbery of some sort on it. And now there's grass and a bunch of tall trees. When did they make this change and why? I've seen pictures with and without trees there, but never with the trees small and growing.

Thanks once again,

DBI

I think the difference is where the curbs are. Great Adventure's streets look and are far more street like. That street was modeled after Kings Island, as was much of the park. It's called Dream Street. The two giant turtles that live in the park are named Fred and Wilma. And the marketing director's favorite roller coaster is The Beast.
