About the Children's Boat Swing

Swing rides, many incorporating boat-shaped vehicles, remain a common feature at amusement parks and carnivals today. Franz Glaser built this one-of-a-kind set of boat swings circa 1920 in what was then known as Czechoslovakia.

The Boat Swings are for the exclusive use of children under six years of age, and are meant to be pushed by a parent or guardian. Jim Conklin, of Conklin & Garrett Ltd., donated the swings to Heritage Park in 1984.
