The south-side park, which is now referred to by its proper name, Reiger Park, was a busy hub for local children in July 1975. Finger-painting, softball, line-ball, T-ball, volleyball, ping-pong and carrom pool were part of the recreation offerings in the summertime. This photo from the July 23, 1975 Forest Park Review features some of the locals posing at the top of the U.S. Lunar Lander Slide, which was on the playground.
