White City (later named Riverview Park) - Greenwood Ave, Louisville  Postcards  Photographs
Built in 1907 at the foot of Greenwood Avenue (Chickasaw Park), White City tried to formulate serious competition for Fontaine Ferry Park.  It had a water ride/roller coaster which was a new concept to the area. The ride was on a track but the final thing it did was plummet into the water.  That ride didn't go over too well with the park guests.  White City also had an out and back wooden coaster, skating rink, dance hall, and many other smaller rides.  The park only lasted three years in Louisville.  Upon its close, Riverview park opened on the former White City site.  Riverview was open from 1911-1913.
