The park also hosted many musical activities and local business family day entertainment in the shaded outdoor stage area. Smaller kids enjoyed their birthday parties in the large indoor kiddie-ride area, featuring "The Whip" and a helicopter ride, and of course a carousel.
The midway featured rides such as the "Paratrooper", the yellow and black "Yo-Yo", bumper cars, the "Scrambler", "Tilt-a-Whirl", and "Magic Carpet". Also featured was a rifle-target game (which broke down for long stretches, but was fun when it was operational) and the ubiquitous cotton-candy, funnel-cake, frozen-ices, and hot-dog vendors.
The park fell into hard times in the early 1990's when a tornado literally bent their Ferris wheel in half, and with the rides removed, the park served as grounds for a monthly arts and crafts exposition. Shortly thereafter, in 1999 it closed permanently. The Hamel family is one of the wealthiest and best known of Louisiana, rivaled only by The Copelands in wealth. This is an interesting site to visit in Louisiana, as the buildings still stand, as well as the log-ride which can be seen from the Jimmie Davis bridge.
