Lost Park

Lost Park - Abandon Water Park in the Mojave.  Shot on 35mm BW film.  

This water park got its start back and the late 50's/early 60's as a local businessman's personal water hole for his family and friends.  Originally named "Lake Dolores," after the owner's wife, the park evolved over the years.  

There were several iterations of the park that had brief success and eventually failed.  Rock-A-Hoola and Discovery water park are the most recent.  

Now, in the middle of the Mojave,  the park sits abandon.  Rumors have surfaced from time to time about a revival but thus far no success.  The parks attractions have been sold off, the buildings trashed and graffitied, and the very little remains of what once was.
