One of North Texas’ favorite attractions has closed. The Sandy Lake Amusement Park in Carrollton has been sold.

Sandy Lake’s owners announced the sale on Wednesday. They thanked the millions of people who have visited the park over the years.

The park is known for its huge swimming hole that goes back to the 1930s. It crew in the 1970s with the addition of amusement rides and has long been a place to escape the summer heat and have family picnics.

“If the park’s legacy is leaving most people with golden memories or pleasant thoughts then the park has done its job,” Sandy Lake Amusement Park said on its Facebook page.

The land was sold to a commercial landscaping company and will no longer be open to the public.
