The rowing boats
where the longest staying attraction in the park until their
removal in 1996.
The boats had
their place on the lake in front of the house for at least
100 years, with many hundreds of people enjoying a relaxing
time on the lake.
With more thrilling
rides becoming more popular, the boats popularity dwindled,
until they were removed in 1996.
