FINDING PLAYLAND is an hour-long neighborhood documentary exploring what it meant to work and play with the family at Seattle’s long-lost Playland Amusement Park.

Playland was a regional amusement park on the shores of Bitterlake, just off Aurora avenue at 130th St. in North Seattle. Open from 1930 until 1960, generations of Seattle kids were thrilled by rides such as the Shoot the Chutes and the Big Dipper. Regional amusement parks such as Playland were a characteristic feature of American urban centers at this time and Playland’s story reflects opportunities and changes in American history. FINDING PLAYLAND uncovers a lost funhouse of Seattle’s regional heritage.

Frenetic Productions is an award-winning Seattle-based film production company. Our most recent release, THE VIOLIN MAKER, took honors at the 2009 International Documentary Challenge and has been screened at the Port Townsend Film Festival. The film is available to view in its entirety at our website:
