Pulaski Park was located on Auburn Road, north of Utica, next to Ramona Park. It had a pavilion dance hall about 70 feet in
diameter, with a band stand at the end.
There was a long concession stand that sold pop, ice cream, candies, popcorn,
and hot dogs, with a seperate building for beer. Jim Brede was paid $1.00 per day by Pete the manager to clean up the area.
Picnic tables were placed throughout the grassy bottom land which made up the picnic area. There were no grills on the premises
so the picnicers would use sticks and small branches to build a fire for cooking.
They cleaned out a hole in the
Clinton River so the kids could go swimming. The water was very clear. Fishing was also a good pastime. There was a ball field
for the kids and grown up kids alike.
