Family fun in 1983

Dane and Cassie Crow have taken over the running of the park from the Tuby family, and have now cleared the site of the old rides and Ferris wheel, although they say they will revamp the dodgems. They hope to open up in time for Easter. Here's a pictorial lookback at Luna Park over the years. See HERE about the couple's plans for the future.
