Wonderland Park was some sort of event facility, "suitable for parties, banquets, dances, etc." 1 near 81st Avenue and Rudsdale. The earliest mentions in the Tribune are from 1928, and the latest from 1931, so it wasn't around very long, at least under that name.

The description of the location is a bit vague, and wanders a bit in ads from 81st Ave, and E12th; to 81st Ave., two blocks south of E14th; to 80th Ave. and E14th.

The last mention found in the Tribune of Wonderland Park is from Delilah Beasley's Activities Among Negroes column in September 1931, when the NAACP held their annual picnic there.
