The Mt. Park Pavilion has been moved from it's location in the north end of the park to an area on the old Midway. The pavilion was originally erected in the early seventies following a gas explosion that leveled the Stardust Ballroom and Tap Room during Holyoke High School's prom in June of 1971. The Ballroom and Tap Room were never rebuilt. The pavilion is all that's left of the original Mountain Park which closed in the fall of 1987. The reason for the pavilion's move is to make way for the stage area of the Mountain Park Amphitheater which will be opening for it's first full season this summer.
