No this is not really the right place for questions and answers about Beardsley Park and Beardsley Zoo. However, since I get copies of "official" answers from time to time, I'll post them here.

What fun to have found your Treeland site. I am a first generation of kids from the Treeland area, not called Treeland then, heck, there were no trees in the yards. I lived on Nutmeg Rd. It was a great place to be a kid. We had the "big pond" and the rock cliffs one side and the big boulders and rock hill on the other. We played baseball in the streets, roller skated over all the many sidewalks and rode our bikes over mounds of dirt around the newly excavated home sites and across Huntington Turnpile to Beardsey Park. we played in the woods and came home when the street lights went on. The year was 1943. I was in the first class to enter the new Thomas Hooker School. The school was overcrowed by the time we got to 5th grade so we had to attend Beardsley School for 6th grade. We were not happy about that to say the least. I am happy to see that the area has maintained a healthy reputation. Many good memories were had there.
