Frontier Village Birdhouses

Artist: Jon Rubin (2007)

Edenvale Park is the former location of Frontier Village, a western-themed amusement park that thrived before closing in 1980.

To demarcate the site of Frontier Village, artist Jon Rubin created bird houses in five locations in the current park that geographically correspond to buildings and amusements that once existed during Frontier Village's heyday: the Railroad Station; the Main Entrance Log Tower Structures; the Mine Ride; the Old School House; and Main Street. Attached to each pole is a plaque that depicts historical photos and text providing context for the amusement park buildings that once existed. The interpretive plaque also describes the species of birds most likely to occupy this new house.
