Ike's Club (former Monarch Park) looking slightly south-east with Monarch Park Rd. entering from the right.  Observe the Electric Tower foundation as a park reference point.  As can be seen by these photographs, the trees have pretty much taken over the park's original 6o plus acres in the more than 83 years since its closing.  Also seen in this image are the approximate locations of where the

Merry-go-round, Trolley Track and Picnic Pavilion use to be.
