America’s First Amusement Park

Lake Compounce got its start as a picnic park in 1846. The carousel made its debut on Memorial Day in 1911. In 1929 you could get a speed boat ride around the lake for just 15 cents. Throughout the years, Lake Compounce led the way with bigger, bolder rides and can’t-miss concerts. Today the park looks better than ever as we balance new thrills and traditional excitement. As the longest continuously-operating amusement park in America, we are experts in family fun.
