Charlie the Clown

I know you've past him.

I know you've taken pictures with him.

Maybe a funny one for the kids or a normal one for Mom and Dad.

He is the clown that sits on the bench, watching you and waiting for you to stop by and say hello.

His name is Charlie, after Charlie Cox, a former gardener who enjoyed sitting on the benches and observing Waldameer's guests as they strolled from ride to ride, maybe picking up some cotton candy or fudge along the way. The clown statue was purchased in Tampa, Florida about 25 years ago. The clown head garbage cans were purchased in Tampa as well.

Next time you see him, take a break from the rides, entertainment, and refreshments. Just take a seat, breath in the atmosphere, and enjoy.
