Here's His Latest Ode to 'Dark Rides'
George LaCross, a Barrington man who grew up in East Providence, is considered one of the world's experts on 'dark rides'. See his latest feature on Crescent Park.
The former Crescent Park in Riverside within sight of Bay Spring in Barrington helped to shape the life of George LaCross, an East Providence native now living in Barrington who grew up not far from the amusement park.
