If you grew up in the Capital Region, chances are you visited Hoffman's Playland in Loudonville as a kid. When it closed back in 2014, it left a void for a lot of kids and adults in the area. Even though it relocated to Huck Finn's in Albany, the land where it once stood was abandoned. Now it looks like something may finally occupy that space.
Hoffman's Playland was an amusement park in Latham from 1952 until 2014. I went there almost every weekend as a kid and even got to take my son Ryan a few times before it closed. Even though many of the rides were relocated to Huck Finn's Playland in Albany, Hoffman's holds a soft spot in my heart. Take a look at the now-abandoned Hoffman's Playland.
