Casino Park (61)
Casino Park's shaded walkways, picnic tables, flowers beds, and flowing brook. Casino Park was built about 1897-98 by the Binghamton, Lestershire, and Union Railroad Company for picnics and festive occasions. The Casino building, an open-air pavilion, was one of Endicott's main landmarks for many years. During the 1920's and 1930's the park and Casino were the center of recreational activities in Endicott. It provided an area for roller skating, dancing, and parties. Even some of the classes at Triple Cities College were held in the building until they found more suitable quarters in 1946. The Casino Building was destroyed by fire in 1948. The stream in the park rose in the pond/swamp/marsh located between the Jennie F. Snapp School and the Colonial Hall building on Lincoln Avenue. The electric interurban trolley line brought summer visitors to the park from the growing valley.
