Comments: Legend City was very much a part of our lives in the early 60s for a couple of years. My father and a friend of his signed up to help build the park after moving several rides from Kiddie Land in Kansas City down to Phoenix. We moved down from Iowa and dad along with others from Kansas City begin work building the park. I was just a kid and did the 7th and 8th grade while living in Scottsdale. Dad eventually became the rides manager at the park after being a foremen in maintenance. It was a great place to go back in the day and it's too bad the park did not make it. The financial problems started from opening day as I recall and never got much better. A combination of overspending and bad decisions concerning hours of operation all contributed to the demise of the park. It's too bad because it was a great park. Kids loved the place, I know I did.
