DelGrosso's Amusement Park Information and Shopping Tips:

Generations of families from across Pennsylvania have special memories of DelGrosso's Amusement Park. Since its beginnings around the turn of the century, the Park has been a source of family entertainment. The Rinard brothers first entertained the public on the Bland Family farm in 1907 when they brought their carnival to Tipton. Twelve years later, Fred Bland opened the park, which consisted of a small dance floor and a picnic grove.The Roaring 20's were prosperous in Tipton. Many of the crowds who came to the Altoona-Tipton Speedway, located just up the road, also visited the Park. In 1928 the Bland Family sold the park to George Rinard, who brought in more rides. He also added a bowling alley and a roller skating rink. Then, the nation and the Park suffered a difficult period during the Great Depression.

ltoona railroader Fred DelGrosso believed that he and his wife, Mafalda, could give new life to the Park. He bought the amusement park in 1946 and almost immediately began improvements. During the next decade, the Park was reborn! Under Fred DelGrosso's guidance, the amusement park grew to include adult and kiddie rides, new concession stands and new restrooms. The park was growing and so was the DelGrosso Family. Fred and Murf's seven sons and daughters, along with their husbands and wives, joined in cooking the food, running the rides and hosting reunions, company picnics and family outings.
