Description 

Robinson Park sprung up in 1896 as a result of a trolley company wanting a destination for it's passengers. For a mere 20 cents one could get a ride to and fro, as well as admittance to the park and all of it's attractions. Longevity was fleeting however, as the park would only be a memory after 1919.
